For the first time I feel that we are not alone in trying to provide our son with a happy and fulfilling life. Inala have provided him with a superior level of care and breadth of opportunities that we have not encountered before.

Inala parent

Inala benefits enormously from the help of others. We hope our volunteers experience the joy and reward of enhancing the lives of the wonderful individuals we are all supporting together.

Martin Porteous, Joint CEO

Inala has been very responsive to the ever-changing needs of our son. The staff do an amazing job.

Eva, Inala parent

Inala provides a stimulating, safe and challenging environment; it is like a family. I am completely happy with the services Inala offers and more importantly the love and respect given to all. Inala has moved with the times and has supported our son carefully and communicated constantly as he gets older and his needs change.

Judy, Inala parent

We have enjoyed every minute of our time at Inala. Volunteering as a team really brings us together and helps us bond. We all feel great at the end of the day knowing we have done something really worthwhile.

UPS Human Resources Manager

Working at Inala is both fun and educational. Working with the clients every day really creates understanding, which makes this work so unique. It is beautiful to see the interaction between the staff and participants as everyone learns from one another and builds friendships.
