Avenue Newcastle was officially opened on Wednesday 23 February! The day program in Warabrook has been growing with enormous success with already around 50 participants taking part in both our work and social programs.
Avenue participant, Julie Clifton shares her story, working in the Order Fulfilment team packaging items and managing stock take with our micro-business partners, including Borne Clothing, a social enterprise that sells mosquito repellent shirts.
“It’s been hard trying to find somewhere to work because no where has given me the opportunity to show my skills,” Julie said.
“But Avenue is something to come to everyday to boost my confidence and gain important skills.”
