Our History

Our History

Activ has a strong and proud history of supporting people with intellectual disability to achieve their goals, break through barriers and increase their independence.

Established in 1951, Activ was formed by a group of families who wanted more for their children who lived with disability and had become marginalised by society.

Today, Activ has grown into one of Western Australia’s largest not for profit disability service providers, now supporting more than 1,800 people with disability across the state.

We believe everyone has the right to live an independent life of their choice.

We’ll support you along your journey towards greater independence – whatever that may look like for you. Finding a place to live and a place to work are just the beginning.

As a registered NDIS provider, we are privileged to support more than 1,800 individuals across Western Australia to achieve greater independence. We provide services in over 100 locations in metropolitan Perth and regional Western Australia, from Geraldton in the north to Albany in the south and Kalgoorlie in the east. We provide services in accommodation, community, employment, training and education, short-term accommodation, and behaviour support.

We are also the major beneficiary of the City to Surf, WA’s oldest and most loved community fun run.

We are Activ, and we believe in you!

We look forward to speaking with you.
