Community Living Australia was formed in 2015 through the merger of two values based organisations - CLASS and Community Lifestyles.

Now supporting over 500 clients and employing close to 450 staff across the state in the; Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu, Southern Metro, Murraylands, Riverland, Kangaroo Island and South East regions. Community Living Australia is committed to ensuring its clients and people with disability have valued roles in the community, the opportunity to accomplish their goals and the ability to realise their dreams. 

The merger has put us in a strong position to now be able to offer our values-based, holistic and personalised services to more people than ever before, helping them to live the life they want to live and to achieve their own personal goals.

CLASS was initially formed in 1983 by a group of concerned parents living in Strathalbyn South Australia, looking for recreational activities for their children with disabilities. Organic and steady growth of the organisation saw CLASS expand to provide services to over 350 people living with disability across regional South Australia. 

Community Lifestyles was formed in 1984 and grew to provide services to over 130 people living with disability in the Murray Bridge and Murray Mallee regions. A valued organisation within its local community, Community Lifestyles prided itself upon its client centric values and the positive relationships it had built within its local community. 


We are proud to offer services for people with disabilities in regional South Australia with a focus on personalisation through Person Centred Active Support and Individualised Planning. Our client services include :
