Our Mission and Difference

Our mission is to enable families of people with developmental disability to plan and implement services that enhance their quality of life and provide a long-term secure future.

Established in 1989, Future Living is unique in answering the question parents most often ask ‘who will be there when we are not?’

How can Future Living help?

We understand the challenges ahead and help you to overcome them.


Our Safe & Secure forums and online course are the first steps in developing your future plan. With our guidance you can be confident about the plans you make.


Our experienced Support Coordination team can help build capacity through your NDIS Plan.


And down the track we can act as your Trustee if needed, to manage money and property for your child as well as provide them a regular visitor and advocate.

For more than 30 years we’ve supported parents like you in creating wills and estate plans to maximise your child’s quality of life and establish future safeguards.

We know that every family’s journey is different, which is why we always get to know you and your situation personally.

Together, we can help you plan for the future, enhance your NDIS participation, and set up long-term protection for your child, providing much needed peace of mind.

Donors and Supporters

We rely on donations, grants, and bequests to fund our critical work, and thank all our donors. partners and pro-bono supporters for the valuable contribution they make.

We simply couldn’t do it without you.


Before we knew about Future Living we were anxious about Shelly’s future. We are very grateful and relieved to find such a wonderful organisation that really will provide for her when we can’t.

Leanne, Shelley’s mum, Future Living client

I can’t thank you enough for your guidance so far. I must confess you have well and truly turned this (NDIS) sceptic around.

My husband and I have donated to Future Living since 2012. We want to ensure the organisation continues to create a secure future for people with intellectual disability, recognising their individuality and striving to meet their needs.

Jennifer Dixon, Practice Leader, Moores Legal, Victoria

I really love working with Future Living. It is great to work with such a dedicated team who genuinely care about their clients. Even though my work does not put me in direct contact with clients, the team always makes me feel like the work I do is helping them to provide a better level of much-needed support in the disability community. It is very rewarding for me.
