Why do we have membership?

Community Living & Respite Services Inc. (CLRS) is an incorporated organisation, and accordingly has a membership which annually elects members of the Board of Management. Members of CLRS are a diverse group of people. They include people we support, parents and family members, staff, friends, health professionals, businesses and many other supporters from all walks of life. Our formation and ongoing success has largely been attributed to the role, commitment and contribution of our members over the years.

Members can be a vital link helping our community to be more inclusive, accessible and welcoming to people with a disability. Members strengthen our ability to offer a powerful and representative voice in the disability sector. An active and vibrant membership is essential in helping CLRS influence and shape models of service delivery, funding, policy and legislative change.

Our members have a common desire to make a difference in the lives of people with a disability, empowering individuals and families to live the life they choose.
