About Us

EBL Disability Services was established in 1981, by a loving group of parents who came together to support each other, and help those with intellectual disabilities to live meaningful lives. To this day we remain committed to ensuring every person is supported to embrace and enjoy a rich and full lifestyle of their choice.  We provide a range of supports including short stays, accommodation, transitional accommodation, assisted holidays, learning and lifestyle programs.

Our services are designed to support individuals and their families from childhood through to adulthood. We are licensed to deliver both adult and children’s services in accordance with licensing conditions based on information set out in the Family and Community Services Act, Children’s Protection Act and the Standards for Alternative Care in SA.

Our Structure

EBL Disability Services is a registered not-for-profit organisation.

We have members and our profits are returned to our service which ultimately benefits the EBL community. We are predominantly funded by state and federal government with additional income generated from fundraising activities and through generous donations by the Foundation.

We have a Board of Directors who oversee all governance of EBL. Our Chief Executive and Leadership team manage the day-to-day operations. Each home has an appointed House Manager who is a key contact for families and significant others.

Our Foundation

The foundation comprises a diverse representative group of volunteer members, carers and EBL Board members. Its primary role is to support a range of activities and programs that enhance and enable a sense of community within our disability service such as:

  • Assisted Holiday
  • Carer forums and events
  • Annual recreational activities

  • Therapeutic and sensory equipment
  • Annual family Christmas party
  • Housing

Both disability services and the Foundation are guided by a Constitution and specific set of By-Laws. Each year we provide an Annual Report which outlines the Foundations and EBL’s governance arrangements, service activities, internal audits, risk and quality management.
