Are-able NDIS Social Enterprises division dates back to 1955, when it was established as ‘Yalunda Support Services’ for people with disabilities in Warrnambool, Hamilton and the surrounding communities.
In 2007, are-able took on INTEG Lawn mowing and Gardening, based out of Terang. The business is now known as Clear Cut Terang. This allowed are-able to further diversify the services it could offer. In fact, it was the first Australian Disability Enterprise operated by are-able.
In 2011, we were able to expand our Social Enterprise model with the Vantage endorsed takeover. Our Supported Employment Enterprises (commonly referred to as SEEs) continue to support over 120 people with disabilities at businesses located in Warrnambool and Hamilton.
Are-able’s Supported Employment operations rely on funds from State and Commonwealth Governments, as well as income generated from business sales. It’s a unique model that empowers people with a disability to re-enter the workforce, while at the same time creating thriving community businesses.
