Avenue is a day program alternative where people of all abilities are supported to complete work tasks, socialise and develop their individual skills, regardless of their support needs.
Avenue is not your typical disability day program. We power opportunities for people with profound and severe disability.
At the heart of Avenue Work are work teams that support people with disability to engage in meaningful work tasks.
Avenue participants with similar interests are grouped together and assisted by a team of passionate support workers. Any revenue generated is then shared equally amongst all participants. Depending on the location of the coworking space, our teams include order fulfillment, animals, flyers, hub management and markets.
Avenue offers a social program in which team members are empowered to exercise individual choice in accessing the community.
With Avenue Social, you will be out and about in the community, enjoying all that it has to offer, regardless of your support needs. Each activity is facilitated by our team of dedicated support workers.
Everyone at Avenue has an individual skill development plan. Avenue support workers are trained to spot opportunities to develop your skills and integrate learning into the day’s activities. You will also make friends for life!
We have a varied social calendar with different activities, locations, group sizes and timings. It is changing all the time, because your choices help create it.
Our mission is to build a national network of coworking spaces that set a new standard for the economic and social inclusion of people with significant disability.

Using Your NDIS Funding
Avenue coworking spaces are designed for people of all abilities; including those with high and very high support needs, who require assistance to access the workspace or community.
Avenue is a registered NDIS service provider via parent non-profit Fighting Chance, and team members use a range of NDIS line items to attend, including Core Supports (Social and Community Participation and Daily Living), Capacity Building and Finding and Keeping a Job.
