Avenue Botany – disability day program

Avenue Botany is different to your traditional day programs. We empower people with disability to contribute to thriving microbusinesses and share in the profits, socialise with team-mates and develop their individual skills, regardless of their support needs.

When you join Avenue, you will have the option to join Avenue Work, Avenue Social or both!

Avenue Work

At the heart of Avenue are work teams where participants engage in meaningful and supported work tasks through our microbusinesses. By breaking down work tasks according to our participants’ abilities and eliminating barriers to work, participants are empowered to increase their knowledge and build their capabilities.

Each work team earns a small remuneration from their work activities, which is shared equally among all participants in a profit share model. Participants are encouraged to select a remuneration goal to work towards which they can then spend with choice and control.

Avenue Social

Through Avenue Social, participants can access events and activities they choose, build important skills and make friends for life! Participants leave feeling more skilled, more equipped, and more empowered than before.

  • Ever changing
    The Avenue Social calendar is put together with the help of participants. Our support workers get to know them and understand their likes, dislikes and needs to make sure they have a great day.
  • Community-based
    Participants will be out and about in the community enjoying all that it has to offer, regardless of their support needs. Each activity is facilitated by our team of  passionate support workers.
  • Skill development
    Everyone at Avenue has an individual skill development plan. Our support workers are specially trained to spot opportunities to develop participant skills and integrate learning into the day.
