Our Story

Accessible Living Options was formed in July 2014 as the result of the merger of two Bathurst services – Evans Community Options (ECO) and Bathurst Independent Living Skills (BILS).  BILS was formed in 1993 and provided Day Programs to people with disabilities. ECO was formed in 1995 and over the years the organisation has grown from a provider of a single program, Community Options, to one that provided a range of services to enable people to remain living in their homes.
