In memory of Brenton Wright who passed away on 2nd November 2017.

Lighthouse Disability were privileged to have had Brenton Wright as Chair for more than 2 years and Director for more than 3 years. During this time Brenton led us through significant change. He was much admired and respected for his expertise, intellect and strong sense of purpose. Above all we valued him for who he was; a vibrant personality, engaging, irreverent and clear about things that mattered.

Thank you to Brenton's family who requested that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Lighthouse Disability. We are very grateful for this generosity. Thank you also to the many people who have honoured the memory of Brenton by making a donation.

Lighthouse Disability Constitution

The Board operates in accordance with the Constitution of Lighthouse Disability Ltd. The Constitution is the set of principles and rules by which we are governed.

Consumer Reference Group

The Board of Lighthouse Disability values input from a sub-committee called the Consumer Reference Group that provides an important form of guidance.

The Group comprises several of our clients who meet once per month to receive and consider feedback from houses about positive initiatives as well as things that are of concern.

Family Advisory Committee

As a sub-committee of the Board, the Family Advisory Committee (FAC) provides important information to the Senior Leadership Team and Board of Lighthouse Disability in relation to what is working well, as well as points of concern about our service delivery. We are committed to improving outcomes for our customers, and the feedback from families is therefore very valuable.

The Senior Leadership Team and Board consult with the FAC in relation to new initiatives, and the committee also takes an advocacy role in relation to matters of concern by writing to key people to express its views - together with suggestions about how problems might be addressed.

Meetings take place on the 2nd Thursday of each month from 1pm-2:30pm. New members are warmly welcomed.

“Lighthouse Disability is a great place to work. It’s been clear since day one that the focus is always on the person that we are supporting.”
