ILS July Newsletter 2018





We've got a new brand look.

You’ll have noticed our branding has a fresh new look, which we are very excited about sharing with you.


So why did we change?
We wanted our brand to best reflect why we exist, what we believe in, and most importantly to better represent the customers we serve. We needed to be easier to recognise and remember, but it was also time to step away from the institutional feel we sometimes had. At the heart of this rebrand is our core focus to help you live your life, your way.

So what does it all mean for you?
Well, in all honestly, probably not a great deal. We're still the same friendly community experts on all things related to disability – but, if you are partial to a bit of design, then hopefully you’ll enjoy the more vibrant and fresher look.

Starting today, you’ll begin to see our exciting new look out in the wild. Changing everything at once would mean wastage, and that’s not what we’re about. Instead we’ll change things to our new look gradually, as and when we run out of the older material. So for a short time you will still see some of our old branding until everything has updated.

Today, we’re taking a bold step forward with our branding and we're excited to share it with you.

The old RSA building is being transformed into 'Bays Health' and will offer a range of high quality health services such as Browns Bay Medical Centre, a pharmacy, physiotherapy and us, Independent Living Browns Bay Store.  We can't wait!
