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. Avenue is one of these enterprises.
Avenue is not your average day program! We are a series of Co-Working Spaces for people of all abilities, regardless of their support needs; working to a vision for a world in which work is accessible for all. Our mission is to build a network of co-working spaces, bringing world-class work, social and learning opportunities to people of all abilities. Each Co-Working Space offers people with disability the opportunity to:
The person is the point: The point of everything we do is always: “What’s best for the person?” This is not negotiable for reasons of either convenience or conformity.
The power of yes: “Yes” is our natural response. We give ideas a chance and find ways to make them happen.
We're trailblazers: Our constant search for better has made us a leader in the sector. We’re innovative and we’re not afraid to be unorthodox if it means a better outcome for the people we serve.
A hand-up not a hand out: We’re in the business of opportunity, not charity. We build social enterprises that enable contribution, dignity and prosperity.
Unbeatable workforce: Our staff are the best in the business. They are talented, fresh minded and determined to make a difference.
Where to next?: We’ll continue growing and influencing in order to reach as many people with disability as we can.
The Team Coordinator Role is central to the successful operations of an Avenue Co-Working Space; Team Coordinators are at the heart of the model, leading a small group of Participants to work on and develop their business team. The Team Coordinator is responsible for coordinating the operations of their business team, to ensure that progress is being made and everyone has meaningful work tasks to do.
The markets team is responsible for curating a range of ethical fair-trade products from marginalised artisans around the world, our Avenue Markets team sell them online and at community markets.
