MEET OUR 24/7 ONSITE SUPPORT PROVIDERS – ACHIEVE AUSTRALIA
As a not-for-profit community organisation, Achieve Australia has provided services and support with integrity, commitment and passion since 1952 for people with a disability to achieve a life that is meaningful and valued. They do this by facilitating the learning and maintenance of life and work skills, the development of relationships, the ability to make life choices and participation in community activities.
Achieve Australia supports people with disability to:
- live independently in new or existing accommodation
- find fulfilling work and develop work skills, and
- learn and participate, by promoting and fostering greater community inclusion.
Achieve Australia champions independence, accountability, innovation and most of all, focusing on the needs and lives of the people we work with.
In 1952 the organisation began supporting 15 people in one facility on donated land in Ryde. Today, Achieve Australia supports more than 260 people with disability in 82 community homes and 22 fully accessible apartments across Sydney and the Northern Rivers region of NSW. Another 46 people living independently in the community receive drop-in support and 55 people with disability are engaged in supported employment. More than 180 people participate in Achieve’s Day Programs across four sites. Achieve Australia’s services and supports are delivered by over 950 employees and they have an active pool of more than 100 volunteers.
