Uppertunity is a social enterprise working with adults with additional needs, learning disabilities and autism, providing skill development, confidence building and social inclusion activities. We focus on an individual’s strengths and aspirations, and then work with them in to realise their potential, leading to self-worth and independence. We do this by offering weekly community groups, meaningful volunteer roles, skills programs, mentoring and social events.
Our mission is to create social change by demonstrating that everyone has strengths. Some people may need more support and attention to get there, but we all have a calling and a purpose we can serve that provides self-fulfillment.
