Avenue Newcastle – disability day program

Avenue Newcastle is different to your traditional day programs. We empower people with disability to complete meaningful work tasks, socialise and develop individual skills, regardless of their support needs.

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

Join us for our Community Open Day on 28 September @2.00pm or 12 October @5.30pm. We will be running tours of our purpose-built space, and will take you through our unique work teams and social program.

Avenue Work – tailored work activities in a vibrant coworking space

At the heart of Avenue are work teams where participants engage in meaningful and supported work tasks through microbusinesses. Any revenue generated from these teams, are recognised and shared equally amongst all participants. Learn more about our microbusinesses by clicking on the teams below!

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.
