Independent Living Specialists (ILS) is pleased to announce the acquisition of Professional Assistance for Living (PAL) from 1 February 2024.

This acquisition will combine our capabilities, resources, and expertise to deliver a more comprehensive range of products and services to South Australians living with a disability.

We anticipate that the following changes will occur over the next few months, from February to June 2024:

  • The PAL business will form part of ILS Kids, but continue servicing existing PAL clients in South Australia as normal.

We will do everything we can to ensure a smooth transition for PAL clients and business partners.

The future is exciting. Together, we will continue developing as a leading provider of paediatric assistive technologies that supports South Australians to move through life. This furthers our shared goal of creating an inclusive community that empowers children with disabilities to lead active and independent lives.

ILS will continue to invest in specialist teams, showrooms, warehouses, and service teams to grow our capability to deliver and serve South Australia.
