Avenue Botany – disability day program
Avenue Botany is an innovative day program, empowering people with disability to make meaningful contributions through work activities.
Avenue Botany provides opportunities for participants to join one of our Work teams, and engage in work tasks tailored to their specific skills, abilities and interests.
Avenue Social at Botany gives participants the opportunity to take part in community based activities with the support that they need to be able to fully participate.
Both the Work and Social aspects of Avenue Botany have been carefully designed to allow for a personalised approach to participation. This ensures each individual and their needs are put first, resulting in a rewarding experience of continued learning and personal growth.
In October 2020 Avenue Botany moved to a new larger premises across the road from our previous location. This new co-working space has been specifically designed to support our participants so that they are able to engage more effectively in both the Work and Social aspects. We are currently taking expressions of interest for new participants.

Highly trained staff
A welcoming setting in a vibrant modern centre (aka Co-Working Space), with activity areas purpose built to meet our participants’ needs, including:

Team work rooms

Hi, my name is Max. I attend Avenue Botany 3 days a week. I do mixed martial arts and Zumba classes with my friends at Avenue Social. I also go out flyering and dog walking as part of Avenue Work. I like to be the life of the party and am always dancing and having a laugh. The most important thing to me at Avenue is my friends. I love driving around and jamming out with them.
