Caboolture Community Work Co-operative
The Caboolture Community Work Co-operative is a social enterprise that was established by local people for local people in response to the need expressed, and self-determined interest of individuals with disability who live in the Caboolture area who had mixed experiences with work and with trying to find work.
The Caboolture Community Work Co-operative believes in:
The right of individuals to have opportunities to attain individual goals and dreams in valued social and work environments within community.
The right of all citizens to have opportunities to learn, grow and realize their own unique individual potential.
The immense value of supportive interdependent relationships and the importance of broadening participation of individuals in social, community Co-operatives.
Increasing and upholding the valued status of individuals within community.
Better Together is a community organisation designed to develop a more inclusive Caboolture & Moreton Bay region.
We supports people with disabilities 1:1 under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) to establish valued role and relationships in their local social, civic and economic community as well as provide alternate programs to address other needs of individuals within our community.
Better Together develops and maintains a wide range of strategies, partnerships and affiliations thus contributing to the overall strengths and wellbeing of the community.
The principles of Better Together are:
Welcoming all people into our activities and assisting them to participate.
Promoting an environment free from all forms of discrimination – an environment where people feel like the belong.
Supporting the principles of social justice and strategies that assist people who experience exclusion to participate in our community.
Resolving any issues that would limit the participation of all people.
