From modest beginnings on the NSW Central Coast as a school for children with a disability in 1962, we have remained resolute in seeking a better life for the people we serve. We have matured through innovation and overcome many challenges.
We have invested and built our commercial capabilities including food packaging, recycling and retailing second hand goods which provides the opportunity for work and enjoyment.
Our reputation as a compassionate enterprise is highly valued by the communities that we serve and we remain committed to developing socially and financially responsible services.
Fairhaven Services exists so that people can experience the joy of discovery, belonging and celebration.
We achieve this by providing opportunity, advocacy and independence for people living and working with a disability.
Our approach is to enable people living and working with a disability to experience all that their life can be. From finding a stream of work that suits, to finding and making lifelong friends in a supportive environment that can also lead to a choice of contemporary living options.
We are responding to ongoing funding challenges that include moving from block funding to ‘person centred care’, the implications of the NDIS and other economic challenges by developing a mix of more flexible, more local, more mobile and more social service offerings that meet the expectations of our customers, our supported staff, their careers and families, enabling us to be advocates for those most in need.
Join our awesome team! There's a range of volunteer roles to suit many skills and interests: helping at events, working in our op shop, general handy man/gardening jobs, office assistance.
Come once a week or a fortnight, we welcome people of all ages. Drop in and say hi, or call on 02 4323 3566.
