In 1957, a group of parents came together to create employment opportunities for their children with disability. From these humble beginnings supporting a handful of young people from rented premises in Camperdown, we have grown into a values-based, for-purpose social enterprise employing more than 1,500 people in key regions of New South Wales.
We are committed to providing contemporary, innovative services that promote choice and
self determination for the people we serve. We recognise that not everyone’s journey is the
same, that our participants’ needs can, and do change for a whole range of reasons.
We celebrate when we see firsthand the difference the right supports can make in a person’s life. We celebrate improved health and wellbeing, involvement in new social activities, new interests in the community and a real sense of belonging and connection to family and friends, housemates and workmates.
We celebrate too with every course enrollment, work-skill gained, resume written, job interview completed and employment goal reached.
To ensure we can offer individualised, personalised support and meet the needs of our community, we continuously develop our services combining participant input with evidence informed approaches.
Our services are available across NSW in the Hunter, Illawarra, Greater Sydney, Central West, Southern Highlands and Southern Tablelands.
We focus on supporting people with disability to explore the world around them, develop their skills and achieve the outcomes they want in their life.
“Grateful thanks to our volunteers, donors, community partners, government, sector and organisational supporters. All of you make a real difference to the lives of people with disability.”
