iLA was established in January 2020 when the Independent Living Centre WA transitioned into two organisations, iLA and Indigo Australasia Incorporated.
The Independent Living Centre WA was founded in 1977, by Ms Freda Jacob. It was originally a not-for-profit information and advisory service for assistive equipment and technology. The organisation has evolved and expanded over time, becoming more customer centric in its service delivery and operation.
iLA continues on from Ms Jacob's legacy by helping the community to make genuine and informed decisions through the provision of independent information, navigation, and capacity building initiatives.
iLA's initiatives include LiveUp, AT Chat, KeepAble, Regional Assessment Services, Village Hubs Grants, NDIA Participant Engagement Panel and Sector Support and Development.
