We support people living with a disability
With a focus on children and young people, we provide services to anyone living with a disability under the age of 65 years who is currently living in a family home where children and young people are present.
Most of our clients are participants of the NDIS, but we also provide privately funded supports.
We are currently increasing our level of registration with the NDIS, so while we currently service participants who are self-managing their plans or have a plan manager, we will soon be able to provide services to all NDIS participants.

She will create and maintain our Support Profiles that guide our team in supporting you, based on your therapy plans and communications with you. She is also available for counselling, and runs training for our staff and support groups for our participants and their families.
It is Renee’s role to provide support and guidance to our staff team, and will often liaise with participants, their families and staff to ensure staff are receiving the training and support they require to provide effective and relevant supports. Renee also manages our rostering, and is a useful point of contact if you have staffing or booking enquiries.
Our Vision, Mission and Values
Our vision is to see every person in our community being included and valued for their individual personality, skills and attributes.
Our mission is to achieve our vision by bringing families and therapeutic networks together, to provide holistic person-centred supports, for every person who engages our services.
We encourage goal setting, decision making and engagement within a community setting, so that the people we support may reach their full potential as a group of valued individuals among their peers.
The values that guide our team are imbedded in our daily operational procedures and we are constantly striving to find new ways to incorporate them into our supports and services.
The Legacy and Where it's Leading Us
Our Founder grew up in a home that experienced disability first-hand, and it is there she developed her passion for inclusive opportunities and community connection, lead by her Mum. Legacy Lifestyle Supports, very proudly honours all that she has learned and is still learning to this day, about personal values, resilience, social awareness and communication.
Today we pride ourselves in maintaining a team that deliver empathetic services, built on a foundation of lived experience with disability, and backed by professional education and training. Many of our staff are either currently living in a home with disability, or have lived in one at some stage. It is this point of difference that allows us to connect with families and community the way we do.
We currently provide disability support services from Victor Harbor to Adelaide for children, young people and families living with various disabilities, and we have big plans to gather our community of participants, along with other local providers and business owners to join the movement for social change around disability inclusion.
