About Fighting Chance

Established seven years ago, Fighting Chance is a not-for-profit spring boarding out of the start-up phase into a period of growth and expansion. We currently support 300+ young adults with disability to achieve their personal and professional goals through work experience, vocational participation and employment in two innovative social enterprises, Avenue and Jigsaw.

We like to challenge the status quo. Our services and programs are designed to combat and solve some of the most endemic challenges faced by people with disability. We seek to challenge the disability sector, and the mainstream to think differently about engaging young people with disability. We like to ask What if?
