Avenue Botany

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. 

In October 2020 Avenue Botany is moving to a new larger premises (more than 700 m²!) across the road from our current location. This new co-working space is being specifically designed to support our participants more effectively so that they are able to engage more effectively. We are currently taking expressions of interest for new participants.

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.
