About Us

Abilities is an Incorporated Society, established in 1959 to employ people with disabilities and provide work for them in as near normal conditions as possible. As part of the normalisation of working conditions we employ able-bodied people alongside the disabled. Around 70% of our staff have a disability of some kind.

For over 50 years the Abilities Group has enriched the lives of people with disabilities through meaningful employment. Many hundreds of disabled individuals and their families benefit from the Abilities Group and having the opportunity to work.

With the employment opportunities offered, the disabled feel part of the community, their level of self worth increases dramatically and they broaden their capabilities. All this adds up to incredibly significant benefits to the person and family.
