Eskleigh is a not-for-profit incorporated body providing high quality support to people with a disability, their families and carers within Tasmania.
We are governed by a passionate Board of Directors, strongly committed to Eskleigh’s mission, and are greatly reliant on the financial support and generosity of the Tasmanian community. Eskleigh is staffed by paid, qualified employees and volunteers.
We operate a 42 bed supported accommodation with full time, qualified nursing and support staff at Eskleigh Homein Perth, Northern Tasmania. We also offer contemporary residential homes in Longford, Kings Meadows, Montrose and Mornington, where people with a disability requiring moderate support live as part of a group home arrangement.
Both Eskleigh Home and the residential homes support and accommodate younger adults with varying levels of intellectual or physical disability, including disabilities caused by an Acquired Brain Injury.
Eskleigh also boasts a premier statewide community support network, offering in-home care and respite services, enabling people with a disability to stay in the comfort of their own home with full support and daily healthcare.
