Fast facts on Endeavour Foundation

 

History

Endeavour Foundation is an independent ‘for purpose’ organisation founded in 1951, when children with a disability were excluded from state schools in Queensland. In response, a group of parents started their own school, and began teaching their children – raising funds and advocating for change so that their children could have a fulfilling and active life.

Today

Endeavour Foundation is a diverse community organisation providing person-centred support for people with a disability as part of the everyday community – through education, training and lifeskill development, employment, accommodation support, respite and recreation. Our productivity and quality is relied on by more than a thousand corporate customers – and together we contribute $480 million to the Australian economy every year.
