Who Supports Us

Trusts and Foundations

Able Australia Services is grateful to all of the Trusts and Foundations that help support the work we do in the community. Thank you.

Private donors

Without the generous support of our many private donors, we simply could not continue to provide the full range of services that we provide to people with multiple disabilities including deafblindness. Thank you.

Corporate partners

Able Australia is continuously seeking support from corporate organisations that wish to help contribute to the wellbeing and development of the greater community. We reach out to people with multiple disabilities, including deafblindness, supporting them in achieving self-fulfilment and connection with the greater community. We welcome all interest from corporate organisations large or small.


Able Australia has a number of regular individual and volunteer groups that provide assistance to the organisation through a variety of ways. There is always work to be done on the many services we manage including gardening, maintenance, cleaning, minor building works and more.

Able Australia is committed to the development of progressive, committed partnerships with corporate leaders who share our goal of inclusion and opportunity for people in our community living with deafblindness and other complex disabilities.

Able Australia is positioned to offer diverse opportunities which can be specifically tailored to individual objectives. Understanding that strong partnerships are based on mutual benefit and tangible outcomes, a distinctive program can assist businesses through:

  • Enhanced corporate profile
  • Improved employee morale, productivity and retention
  • Increased community support
  • Alignment of brand and corporate values.

Corporate programs, staff engagement and philanthropic donations are instrumental in achieving Able Australia’s vision of creating a community where people with multiple disabilities including deafblindness are seen, heard, respected, valued and connected.

For further information about corporate partner and philanthropic opportunities please contact the Fundraising Manager on 1300 225 369.
