Fighting Chance designs, builds and scales social enterprises which move the dial for Australians with disability and their family. We work to identify the challenges, hurdles and barriers faced by people with disability in their everyday lives and then design and build sustainable social enterprise businesses to bridge these gaps. One of these social enterprises is Avenue.

Avenue is a Co-Working Space for people of all abilities, regardless of their support needs as we work to a vision for a world in which work is accessible for all. Our mission is to build a national network of co-working spaces, bringing world-class work, social and learning opportunities to people of all abilities. Each Co-Working Space offers people disability the opportunity to:

  • Work: Avenue forms and facilitates micro-enterprises to enable participants to utilise their skills and contribute to the economy.
  • Learn: Avenue offers participants a range of learning and skill development opportunities, across a range of content areas including work skills, social skills and personal development.
  • Socialise: Avenue offer participants the opportunity to engage actively and meaningfully in social aspects of community life and develop friendships.


Avenue is open to all. Our approach is person-centred and aspirational. Like any Co-Working Space, Avenue encourages all to build social skills and relationships and offers a social program in which participants are empowered to exercise individual choice in accessing the community. Avenue Social team members choose what they want to do, with whom, and when they want to do it. The Social Coordinator will understand the importance of individual choice and autonomy as well as appreciate that people with disability deserve to actively participate in community-based social activities, just like anyone else. They will work closely with people with disability, their families/guardians and other support staff to help participants realise their social goals whether it’s going to a regular martial arts class, visiting a museum, going to the theatre or taking a bike ride in a park!

The Social Coordinator is responsible for the planning, communicating, executing and assessment of the successful implementation of Avenue’s Social program. The Social Coordinator is responsible for facilitating participants’ engagement in social and recreational activities in the community, to ensure that all participants are achieving their goals and building connections with the community.
