About the organisation
Anowah Community Living (Anowah) is an NFP based in Horsley Park and was established in 1967. We support authentic social inclusion of people with disability so that they are active and engaged citizens of Sydney’s Third City. We provide supported independent living and associated disability services to a settled but small client base of up to 30 clients.
Central to our history is that our service has endless stories of personal care and connections between clients, their families and carers, and our staff.
We are embarking on considerable change - exciting new strategic directions that include expanding our disability support services, an organisational rebrand and developing a long-term property strategy - to name a few. It is a very exciting time to be part of our organisation, making a genuine impact on the lives of our clients and their families and carers - and, importantly, to also support our high quality and engaged workforce.
