Liz Cohen

Liz began leading Cara, one of South Australia’s largest disability-service providers, in May 2015.


Under Liz’s leadership, Cara has transformed, growing from supporting 650 children and adults with disability, to now working with 730 customers and employing more than 850 staff.  It is expected that our staffing numbers will reach 1000+ by the end of this financial year.  Liz also completed an executive level restructure which is focussed on transforming the business to meet the challenges that the NDIS will bring.


In 2016, Cara celebrated the milestone of 21 years of providing support to children and adults with disability in accommodation, respite, services at home and in the community, and creative supports from the developmental educators in Cara’s Specialist Services Team.  To celebrate the milestone, Liz oversaw refreshing the organisation’s brand which includes a new promise: we find possible


Liz has more than 30 years’ experience in the disability, education and health sectors. Previously, she was Executive General Manager, Client Services for the Can:Do Group and she has qualifications in Education and Disability.
