Organiser Supportivity (formerly 121 Care)

Organiser of Disaster Preparedness - Business Continuity Planning

From 1 December 2021, 121 Care will be known as Supportivity. As Supportivity, we will bring together our services previously known as Colville Lodge, Guardien Group, and 121 Care.

In the early 90s, Terry Chakley and Don Harrison worked with Kevin Cocks AM of Lifestyle Options in Brisbane to set up a not-for-profit that would provide self-directed supports on the Sunshine Coast for people living with spinal injury like themselves. The drive to establish this service meant that it would allow them to say how and when their supports were to be delivered, so they could live life independently.

In 1992, Supportivity (formerly Quality Lifestyle Alliance, later 121 Care), an accredited not-for-profit commenced and in the years since, we have embraced that vision and turned it into a range of support services for people living with disabilities across south-east Queensland including:

  • Personal care
  • Overnight supports
  • In-home assistance including meal preparation and domestic chores
  • Transportation
  • Holiday supports
  • Access to community and social services
  • Support Coordination
  • Community participation

Supportivity is a thriving entity that now includes management of 24/7 supported accommodation and supported independent living residences for people with mental health illness as well as intellectual and physical disabilities. The acquisition of Colville Lodge in Brisbane, Guardien Group in Redland Bay and the setting up of Cooloola House in Gympie as well allied health services, Suncoast Integrated Therapies between 2015 and 2017, has broadened the scope of services offered to people with disability.

Our supports for people with disabilities, also extend to the provision of transportation to clients so they can attend appointments as well as social gatherings. In addition, holiday support in terms of equipment, transport and personal supports is available for travelling non-clients.

Our vision is to support you choose the life you love!
