Activ is making some changes to our Business Services sites, consolidating our metropolitan sites at Embleton, East Victoria Park, Kewdale and Palmyra into one, purpose built site at Bentley. The new Bentley workplace will create greater choice and control for our supported employees, encourage their career development and teach them new skills. There are a number of changes happening at our Business Services sites over the coming months, with the move to the Bentley site set to commence in late August.
The New Bentley Site
The Activ Bentley site, located at 25 Ewing Street is purpose built, newly refurbished workplace specifically designed to support employees living with a disability to achieve their workplace goals. Features of the new workplace include:
State of the art IT equipment including a digital hub
A range of work options including cutlery packing, headset refurbishment, industrial packing and a variety of other exciting projects
A brand new canteen
A photo gallery of the refurbishment's progress can be viewed here.
The move to the Bentley site is expected to commence in August with each site moving separately over a seven to eight week period. More information on the move dates will be provided by the end of July.
The move will take place over a period of eight weeks, with each site moving one after the other. Our Kewdale operations and supported employees will move first, followed by Embleton, East Victoria Park and finally Palmyra.
The move dates for each site are as follows:
Last work day at Kewdale: Friday, 25 August 2017
First work day at Bentley: Monday, 28 August 2017
Last work day at Embleton: Friday, 8 September 2017
First work day at Bentley: Monday, 11 September 2017
East Victoria Park
Last work day at East Victoria Park: Friday, 22 September 2017

Supported employees will visit the Bentley site in the week before they are scheduled to move, to give them time to familiarise themselves with their new workplace.
Work start and end times for supported employees will remain the same, unless new work start and end times have been agreed with Activ staff prior to the move to Bentley.
We will also hold an open day event for families, friends and carers after the completion of the move of all four sites to the Activ Bentley site. You will receive an invitation to this open day event at a later date.
