About the organisation

Organisation name : Forsight

About Us:

As a ‘for-purpose’ organisation providing Supported Independent Living (SIL) and Behaviour Support services to individuals with a range of sensory impairments and additional disabilities, our focus is to create opportunities for our clients to enhance their independence, inclusion, and well-being.

Forsight was established in 1978 by a group of parents and teachers wanting to ensure their children had a pathway to independent living as young adults and beyond. Their mission has expanded to include people with a range of sensory impairments and disabilities, supporting a growing number of clients in homes. The love and dedication of those original parents and teachers remains at the heart of all we do.

With 18 SIL homes across Greater Sydney and the Illawarra, our mission is to provide high-quality care and improve the quality of life for our clients.
