We work to identify the challenges, hurdles and barriers faced by people with disability in their everyday lives and then design and build sustainable social enterprise businesses to bridge these gaps. Avenue is one of these enterprises.

Avenue is not your average day program!

Our mission is to build a national network of coworking spaces, bringing world-class work, social and learning opportunities to people of all abilities. Each coworking space offers people disability the opportunity to:

  • Work: Avenue forms and facilitates micro-enterprises to enable participants to utilise their skills and contribute to the economy.

  • Learn: Avenue offers participants a range of learning and skill development opportunities, across a range of content areas including work skills, social skills and personal development.
