Activ was established in 1951 when a group of families came together because they believed their children living with intellectual disability deserved better. This fundamental belief in people is what still drives us today.
We focus on enabling and supporting people living with intellectual disability in their transition towards independence. We believe independence is the freedom to make choices about your own life, and taking responsibility for those decisions.
Believing in you means supporting you to do what you love and live life to the fullest – whatever those goals look like for you.
Activ is a not-for-profit organisation incorporated under the Associations Incorporation Act 2015. For more information on our governance policies, our executive team and board and council members, click the button below.
