Uppertunity is a social enterprise working with adults with additional needs, learning disabilities and autism, providing skill development, confidence building and social inclusion activities. We focus on an individual’s strengths and aspirations, and then work with them to realise their potential, leading to self-worth and independence. We do this by offering weekly community groups, meaningful volunteer roles, skills programs, counselling and social events. Our mission is to create social change by demonstrating that everyone has strengths.
The services provided promote health and well-being, and develop transferable life skills. Clients will benefit from increased confidence, creativity, motivation, skills and a sense of achievement as well as feeling more engaged with their community and society. Three of our clients are part of our Board of Directors.
