Who We Are
We are Activ, and we believe in you.
We believe in your abilities and your potential, and in supporting you to make real choices in your life.
Since 1951 we have been supporting people disability in Western Australia. That means we love what we do and we have a passion for people. Our purpose, vision and values all combine to explain what we stand for and why you can believe in us.
