At OC Connections, we respect our participants’ right to choose, and we don’t take their choice to use our services for granted. We make sure our programs are as impactful and tailored as they can be, facilitated by understanding, curious and experienced people. Every team and team members’ contribution has an impact felt throughout the whole organisation, and throughout our participants’ experiences with us – because everything we do at OC Connections comes back to supporting our people with disabilities.

Our trained and experienced team have access to best practise professional development and ongoing workplace support and feedback opportunities required to enhance our participants’ quality of life and wellbeing and to build a fulfilling and inspiring career.
