About this opportunity

The not-for-profit organisation has expanded so much since its inception and recently moved into its new home in South Hedland on Hedditch street, where it not only offers disability support services, but gymnastics classes to the wider community in its multi-purpose facility.

HCLA move has allowed them to expand their services from not just disability support, but to helping at risk children in the community and providing a space for service providers like occupational and speech therapists to meet with clients.

The service recently started employing disability support workers and hiring out equipment that can assist people and their families.

It offers after school activities, family support workers, advocacy services, a respite house, cleaning, senior programs, disability transport.

An exciting new feature of their new facility is their multipurpose gymnastics centre, where they offer gymnastics training for anyone wanting to develop their skills in the community.


  • They got recently a big donation of paint and painting supplies so they would love volunteers to help them to paint all the inside walls.
  • One of the rooms needs a paint prep
  • Upstairs need reorganizing and clean up


  • Any necessary PPE
  • Catering (Morning Tea and Lunch)
