Liberty is about “freedom, independence, choice”
Wellbeing is “the state of being comfortable, healthy, and happy”
The Liberty experience outlines our holistic approach to wellbeing.
Our focus is on providing a wellbeing experience that encompasses every aspect of life, enabling people to regain their independence, be socially connected and remain active in the community.
These six aspects make up the Liberty wellbeing experience.
The Liberty wellbeing experience is about recognising that people need people. Our wellbeing is enhanced through strong relationships. Connection is about being treated fairly, being involved in the community and belonging.
“Liberty are an important part of my support network. I think back to each person here who has impacted my life, contributed to it and helped me through every stage of my journey and I am so thankful for each of them. During this time, I made lasting friendships with people who, 17 years later, are still in my life” – Female Client

The Liberty wellbeing experience is about recognising and celebrating our differences. It is about feeling good about yourself and what makes you unique and finding your place. Liberty is passionate about adjusting services based on the individual needs of our clients and ensuring that all people have found their place.
“Up until this point, none of the services suited me as I had the twins, who were not disabled, and didn’t fit into any programs. I didn’t fit within a box. It was then that I met the people at Liberty – who looked outside the box and included me. They realised that by helping my kids, they were helping me, so they adjusted the services to fit me in” – Female Client
“You feel like you are not just a number, but individual” – Female Client
“I could not find help for someone under 65 on a disability pension. Liberty saved me!” – Female client
“Staff want to make your experience special, individual” – Female Client
