Our History

In the late 1980’s a number of local stakeholders within the Clarence Valley saw an opportunity for an organisation to be founded that would fulfil the role of assisting people in the community. In July 1988, our organisation was incorporated under the Incorporations Act 1984.

Over a number of years, our structure morphed as we absorbed smaller projects into one cohesive organisation. We continued to evolve, and in the year 2000 appointed our first Chief Executive who began to expand the organisations property portfolio. Subsequent CEO’s continued the organisations expansion and in 2015 began our transition away from revenue based predominantly on Government funding, to the new world of user choice and control through the NDIS and MyAgedCare.


In 2019, Daniel Becker was appointed CEO and immediately tasked by the Board with improving efficiency and financial sustainability after what had been a few challenging years.

Now working right across the Mid North Coast and Northern NSW regions, Livable (formerly CRANES) is a sizable regional employer with close to 200 employees who are supported by three base offices located in Grafton, Maclean and Coffs Harbour.

Commitment to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People

Livable acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples as the First Peoples of this nation. We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians and ancestors of the land our Elders past, present and those emerging in the future. Livable respects the land which we work and deliver our services.

Livable is committed to promoting reconciliation throughout our services and through the many ways we engage with our community.  Our vision is to provide an inclusive community where everyone gets a fair go, and our people have choice regardless of their race, religion or socio-economic background.
