How we started
14 June 1951 was a significant day, not just for Endeavour Foundation but for people with disability and their families.
More than 70 years ago, there was very limited support available for people with intellectual disability. In Queensland, children with intellectual disability were often excluded from classrooms with their families were left to fend for themselves.
Endeavour Foundation was born from the voices of parents who demanded one of the most basic human rights - the right to an education.
Their resolve quickly turned to action, forming a movement that to this day advocates for social inclusion for people with disability. It started with a makeshift school on the verandah of a Brisbane home and grew momentously from there.
