Blairlogie Living & Learning is a registered National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)a non-profit community organisation that has been supporting people with a disability since 1987. We provide supports to people living in the Local Government Areas of:
- Mornington Peninsula
- Glen Eira
- White Horse
The organisation was born from the hard work and dedication of a small group of parents who wanted their children to be “part of an outdoor facility, where people could work with their hands and get exercise daily.
”This group of parents worked tirelessly to establish Blairlogie and to create a facility that their children would go to upon completion of their formal education. Since 1987 Blairlogie has continued to evolve. The growth of the organisation, both in numbers of people supported and services offered has always been in direct response to unmet need of people with a disability and their families/carers.
In 1987 Blairlogie, a registered Day Training Centre, opened its doors to 18 clients from its site in Baxter. Blairlogie is now a multi-faceted organisation providing support to more than 400 people across a range of services including
- Individual and group supports
- Facility and Community based respite,
- Support Coordination
- Teenage Services

Blairlogie recognises and appreciates the power of partner- ships. We actively seek out like minded partners, those that share our vision, and want to play a role in creating thriving communities. Communities in which diversity is celebrated and embraced and people with a disability are recognised for the valuable social and economic contributions they make. Blairlogie is Governed by a Board of Management comprising of parents and cares of people with a disability as well as business and community leaders.
The Leadership team of the organisation has significant experience, skills and knowledge in the disability sector and represent a passion and a dedication that is a unique feature of Blairlogie.
