About us
About Disability Matters, Atherton

Disability Matters has been working actively in the community to provide help and understanding with quality disability support care since 1990. Formed in response to community need, the organisation was originally known as Tableland Respite Care Association. The name was changed in May 2016 to better communicate what the organisation is all about – Disability Matters to us.

Disability Matters operates from Heraghty House at 39 Robert St, Atherton. The building was officially opened in October 2015 and has been named in honour of Pat Heraghty who was a founding member of the Board and involved with the organisation for many years. The building has office space, meeting and interview rooms. Our large meeting room is available for hire and is used by other local organisations for training sessions and seminars.
