OC Connections is a not-for-profit organisation. We rely on community support to supplement the many services and programs we provide to people, and their families. We are committed to services that enable all those with disabilities to live active lives with dignity and independence.

Together we can make a difference

Did you know that there are still a number of things not covered by the NDIS? In fact, now more than ever, we rely on donors just like you, to help us ensure that people of all abilities can access the things they need to live independent and fulfilling lives.

From purchasing beds, buses, and education aids through to promoting art programs and buying new sporting equipment, the money we raise through our OC-Achieve Fund helps participants learn new skills, improve their independence and build confidence in their daily lives.

With your help, we can make a difference.

Your support is greatly appreciated! And just to show you how much, a few of our people got together to say ‘thank you’.
