Achieve Australia celebrates its 65th Anniversary

Achieve Australia's 65th Anniversary Celebration

In 1952 the organisation began supporting 15 people in one facility on donated land in Ryde.

Today, Achieve Australia supports 123 people in 32 community homes and 22 apartments in Sydney and the Northern Rivers region of NSW. More than 51 people living independently in the community receive drop-in support and 192 people participate in Day Programs.

At our celebrations of the 65th Anniversary, an enjoyable day at our Epping facility, Araluen was share by many. Here are some photos from the day.

16th Annual Achieve Golf Day

16th Annual Achieve Golf Day

The generosity of supporters raised nearly $60,000 to expand our much-needed nursing services

It is a little-known fact that not all nursing services for people with disability are covered by NDIS funding. Regardless, Achieve Australia continues to provide a variety of health and wellbeing services – including those delivered by Registered Nurses – to people we support based on need alone.

Once again, Achieve Australia was delighted to invite supporters to the biggest fundraising event in our calendar. This year the 16th Annual Golf Day was held at the Monash Country Club on Thursday, 26 October. We have been delighted with the outcome of the event, raising just under $60,000 towards funding an expansion of our much-needed nursing services.

Thanks to the wonderful contributions of our supporters, and the generosity of the players and our Corporate Sponsors, the Golf Day has raised a total of more than $510,000 since its inception 16 years ago. All of these contributions have gone towards a variety of projects which further enabled Achieve to support people with disability to live extraordinary lives.

Fusion Foundation Gala Ball

Following a successful inaugural event in 2016, The Fusion Foundation will once again be hosting its Fusion Foundation Gala Ball in the heart of Ryde. The Fusion Foundation was formed in 2016 by a group of Ryde locals who all believed in the same common goal – to enrich the lives of those less fortunate in their local community. To achieve this ‘Unity in the Community’ the annual Fundraising Gala Ball was created to benefit the following local charities: Achieve Australia, Alzheimer’s Australia and Royal Rehab. This is an event that can’t be missed – it is your chance to participate, mix with like-minded businesses and give something back to those in need of support in the local Ryde Community. Book your seats as time is limited!
