Our roots, our voice, our brand  

We are launching a new brand to help mark the deeper changes in practice that we have achieved through hard work and dedication to reforming ICLA over the past three years.  

In developing a new brand to represent ICLA we aimed to reflect both the staff of ICLA and the people we support. It was also important that we maintain the ’grass roots’ and advocacy aspect as it is an important part of ICLA’s history and how it came to be. In particular was the sense of being a voice for people with psychosocial disabilities and complex needs and advocating for their support needs from a human rights-based approach.  

The new brand has been developed through consultation with the people we support and our staff, and developed in partnership with the fantastic creative consultancy Folk.  


With over 30 years experience in mental health and disability support, ICLA understands the importance of flexible support which gives the people we support real choice and control.  

We provide  

a range of person-centred services that can be tailored to meet each person’s individual goals.  

support to individuals who have or are experiencing a variety of psychosocial disabilities including schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorders, personality disorders, mood disorders, depression, acquired brain injury and intellectual disability.  

specialised services for people aged between 18 to 85 years, working creatively with people with complex needs in Inner Sydney, the Eastern Suburbs, the Inner West and South East Sydney.  

…and upwards  

On 30 November 2018, we’re holding a Relaunch  BBQ event to celebrate a big volunteer effort to repaint and refurbish a shared home on Blair Street in Bondi.  

The location is significant as it is the original ICLA residence around which the organisation was established.  

The event involves 30‐40 volunteers repainting the residence and fixing up the garden. We’re using this opportunity to ’relaunch ICLA’ to recognise the past two years of intensive.
