Able Australia CEO Celestine Hare said she was excited to invite everyone to recognise the hard work of everyone involved.

“Bunnings not only donated all the materials they also provided staff and volunteers,” Ms Hare said.

“Horticultural students from the Campbell Page Learning Centre also pitched in to help design and create this wonderful community space for the people Able Australia works with as well as the Brighton community.

Able Australia currently runs day services and accommodation service facilities across Tasmania, which in total provides support for 110 adults.

The programs run by Able Australia in Tasmania provide employment for almost 200 locals.

Able Australia also works closely with other community organisations, including the Glenorchy City Council community development team to create opportunities for the people we support and other members of the community.
