ABOUT US

The impact of not having access to employment and training can be debilitating. Unemployment is a major reason for poverty and poverty is the major cause of housing stress and homelessness.

 
Vision

As a leading social enterprise, Enable's vision is a socially, environmentally and economically connected community without disadvantage.

 

Mission

To tackle disadvantage and the digital divide by connecting community, environment and local economies.

 

Our Values

Connectedness:  We collaborate effectively to tackle disadvantage through creating social and environmental value and fostering economic development with the broader communities.

Challenging: We are innovative, adaptable and able to lead and create new models for sustainable social enterprises and service excellence.

 

Passionate:  We proudly and relentlessly encourage and support communities and individuals who are disadvantaged, disconnected from the labour market and experience digital and economic exclusion.

 

Inspire:  We enable collective and individual social, economic and environmental impact through our upbeat, imaginative and motivating ways.

Like us to keep up to date.
