Endeavour Group Australia has opened the doors of a new Leisure, Learning and Work Centre in western Lake Macquarie to meet the growing needs of local people with disabilities.
The Centre in Fennell Bay is an extension of the Endeavour community providing a variety of innovative activity-based programs, supported employment and training services.
More than 100 people including clients and their families, business and political leaders, disability and community service professionals attended the official opening.
Endeavour CEO, Don MacAskill, said that the Lake Macquarie site was chosen as a result of increased demand in the western parts of Lake Macquarie.
‘The Centre is the next step in providing a new choice to the people of Lake Macquarie. It will complement our current services located in Maitland, Singleton, Cessnock, Weston, Port Stephens, Muswellbrook and Newcastle,’ Mr MacAskill said.
