Intelife Group was established in 1991 when a committed group of Perth parents recognised the need for an agency which could offer a higher-than-normal level of support for people with disabilities who wanted to get a job in the community. Starting small from an office in Osborne Park, employment support was provided to 30 school leavers.
Lifeskills Plus was added to its list of services in 1998, following the success of a pilot program which provided more flexible options of support for people who required alternatives to employment. Since that time, Intelife has grown considerably and continues to provide Employment and Lifeskills Plus programs in addition to Respite, Holiday, Training and Development services. There are now 9 offices throughout Western Australia and the original commitment to helping people with disabilities, particularly those with high support needs, remains its primary focus.
