Hartley Lifecare is a local and specialised disability service that provides high quality residential, recreational, respite, transport and community services for children and adults with physical and complex disabilities, their families and carers living in our local community.

On behalf of Hartley Lifecare I am calling on the Canberra community to get their HART.R8 pumping and register to participate via Hartley.org.au. Once registered, you simply set up your Everyday Hero fundraising page and ask family and friends to sponsor you. Your support will make a real difference and raise much-needed funds to support people with complex and physical disabilities in the ACT and surrounding regions’ said Skier, cyclist, trekker, triathlete, world and Australian record holder, Paralympian, Olympian and Hartley Lifecare Ambassador Michael Milton.

While many disabilities develop before birth, the reality is that a disability or brain injury can happen unexpectedly to anybody at any stage of their life. Hartley Lifecare exists to support people with a wide range of complex disabilities through our programs and services delivered by our skilled and caring staff.
