Avenue Parramatta

Avenue Parramatta is different to your traditional disability day program. We empower you to engage in purposeful work tasks and share in the profits, socialise with your team-mates and develop your individual skills, regardless of your support needs.

We have moved to a brand new space in George St, Parramatta and now have capacity to accept new participants!

When you join Avenue, you can join Avenue Work, Avenue Social or both!

Avenue Work

At the heart of Avenue are work teams where you are empowered to engage in real work tasks in a supported environment, that will increase your knowledge, build your capabilities and provide a sense of purpose.

You can choose from a number of different work teams, based on your interests and goals. These can include order fulfilment, pet-sitting and dog-walking, flyering and letterbox drops. You can learn more about our different teams by clicking below!

You will earn a small profit from your work activities, which recognises your contribution and productivity to your team, and is yours to spend as you like.

Avenue Social

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

Our social calendar is put together with the help of you, based on your likes, dislikes and needs, to ensure you have a great day! You might go bushwalking, take an exercise or music class, head to sporting, musical or cultural events, or enjoy adding new things to the calendar.

Our team of dedicated support workers are trained to develop your skills and integrate learning into the day’s activities. Some of the skills you might choose to focus on could include independence, confidence, money-handling, communication, and road safety awareness.

“My name is Katie and I’m 31 years old. I usually work in Order Fulfilment with YEVU, Mondays and Wednesdays. I like updating our OF Task Chart so we know who is doing what. My favourite task is to take the parcels to the post office and also stretch my legs. 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.”
