Avenue Business Partnerships

We are looking for like-minded business partners who believe in building an inclusive economy, whilst benefiting from a high-quality service.

Avenue is a day program alternative where people with disability can make a purposeful contribution and generate revenue through microbusinesses.

We empower our participants (known as team members in our coworking spaces) to join work teams and contribute to our microbusinesses which carry out:

We are driven by the belief that everyone can be productive, and fully take part in our society economically and socially. By breaking down work tasks according to our team members’ abilities and eliminating barriers, we offer a workplace for all.

Each work team earns a small remuneration from their work activities, which is shared equally among all team members in a profit share model. The remuneration recognises a team member’s contribution and productivity. Each team member selects a remuneration goal to work towards which they can then spend with choice and control, often for the first time in their lives.  

We are always looking for opportunities for new and and different types of work for our teams – so if you have a business need that isn’t listed, we can work together to see how Avenue can meet it.

Create opportunities for people with disability in your supply chain.

Business Partner Testimonial

“When I read about Avenue it just made sense; it really resonated with the core purpose of YEVU which is to support fair employment of all people, regardless of background, gender or ability. Our customers, who are very often conscious consumers, also love the fact that we have partnered with an Australian social enterprise and have a positive local impact.”

FOUNDER, YEVU

Business Partner Testimonial

“I feel like there is mutual affection and respect between us, our teams and businesses. The [Avenue] teams are hardworking, reliable and quick with their communication. To be able to provide opportunities and skill development for men and women with a range of abilities, and gain top quality services support for our business is such a win-win, and our customers are thrilled that we have such a meaningful partnership.”

KRISTINA FREEMAN
CO-FOUNDER, GROW YOUR MIND

Business Partner Testimonial

“The approach we’ve taken to building a supply chain has been simple: we can’t generate a net positive social impact if we’re harming the people and places involved in creating our product. Joining up with Avenue has meant adding something meaningful to an otherwise basic process, and we’re thrilled to be a part of their mission.”
