Quality Living Options Bendigo Inc. is a not-for-profit group first formed early in 2012 with the major concern being the appropriate care and accommodation of their intellectually disabled adult children when they are no longer able to care for them. Incorporation was completed in July 2012 and DGR status successfully achieved in July 2014. In 2014 our website was introduced online and the Facebook page established in June. QLOB now comprises over 50 committed members. QLO was awarded a City of Greater Bendigo Community Grant in November 2014 and this has been utilised to produce a series of videos that we are now using to spread the word about our situation and the urgency of our need.
Our current project is to raise funds for land to establish our ‘Footprint Project’ - one that will establish a place where we can create our community of care - a place where people can live to reach their potential with the support and company they need to do it.
