MISSION AND HISTORY
Liberty Disability Services was founded in 2018 and is a collaboration between by Directors Elle Cooper, Kathie Denno and Amanda Glasson.
Having worked in the community and disability sector for some time, Director Elle Cooper was passionate about working with at risk youth and taking on the complex cases that were often overlooked. Acknowledging that there was a lack of provider support for this it was the drive for change that saw Elle bring Liberty Youth Services to life.
It was at the same time Directors Kathie Denno and Amanda Glasson were recognising gaps in service delivery and it was through their passion to provide quality support that P.O.P Disability was developed.
The stars aligned and through a mutual desire to provide a professional inclusive service for a sector we are so passionate about, the collaboration between Liberty Youth Services and P.O.P Disability was born, giving you what we are known as today; Liberty Disability Services.
