Avenue Newcastle – disability day program
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!
Avenue Social – a diverse and exciting range of social events and experiences
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.
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.
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.
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.
Avenue is all about offering participants:
Tailored support that accommodates the individual
A purpose-built environment to meet the needs of all
Highly trained staff
A team of committed staff who are all about making a difference
Avenue Newcastle is a vibrant, welcoming coworking space, with activity areas purpose built to meet our participants’ needs, including:
Chill out/Sensory rooms
Team Work Rooms
Open Work Areas
My name is Katie and I’m 31 years old. I work in Order Fulfilment for our partner YEVU on Mondays and Wednesdays. I like updating our Task Chart so we know who is doing what. My favourite task is to take the parcels to the post office. I am proud that I can follow the process manuals and double check orders to make sure everything is correct so we can make the customers happy.
My name is Niranjan and I am 26 years old. I attend Avenue one day a week. My favourite hobbies are cricket, video games and watching movies. My favourite task in the Gigs team is taking photos.
