CLA Foundation

The Community Lifestyles Foundation was established in 2010 with a broad purpose to support people with disabilities in the Murraylands region of South Australia. In 2017 a name change to the Community Living Australia Foundation was accepted with the intention of more accurately reflecting a corporate partner relationship with Community Living Australia.

Founding goals and objectives of the Foundation include applying funds toward:

  • a comprehensive range of integrated lifestyle support options which meet the identified needs of people with a disability in the Murraylands region of South Australia.
  • the facilities for such lifestyle support options.
  • the means for families and members of the public and other benefactors to give and bequeath funds which may be used to enhance the services offered by the Foundation to people with a disability.
  • funds for research for the benefit of the disabled.
  • funds for the purchase of real and personal property for the benefit of the disabled.

Future goals and objectives:

The Community Living Australia Foundation intends to honour the history and efforts of the original Trustees of the Murraylands Community Lifestyles Foundation by preserving the capital of the organisation as at January 2017 for the benefit of projects that specifically benefit people with disabilities in the Murraylands region. Future funds raised may be used toward projects that benefit any peoples with disabilities in South Australia.


To be a partner in supporting people with disability to shape their own lives.


To assist in the funding of initiatives which might enhance lifestyle opportunities for people with disability, their families and carers.
