Endeavour Foundation Industries at Seven Hills will open its doors to the public on Wednesday 24th August to showcase the life-changing opportunities it offers to people with a disability.
The “We Can make a Difference” Open Day would like to welcome parents and carers of people with a disability, in particular, so that they can discover the huge difference that the service can make to their sons’ and daughters’ lives.
The Business Service Manager, Michael Carney, says it’s a chance for people to see what Endeavour Foundation Industries is all about and to see how it offers support.
“Endeavour Foundation offers all kinds of opportunities including full- and part-time employment, training, personal development, and social and lifestyle options for people with a disability,” he said.
“Our supported employees will be there to demonstrate what they do and share with our visitors why they like being here.
“A free sausage sizzle and a guided tour of the services will be on offer to our guests, and we look forward to meeting everyone.”
Endeavour Foundation Industries has three sites in Sydney - Seven Hills, Mount Druitt and Castle Hill – which were acquired from the insolvent Cumberland Industries, saving nearly 500 jobs in the process.
The Seven Hills site, also known as Clean-Pac Services, employs 100 people with a disability and is one of the largest contract packaging companies in Australia.
Supported employees at the site are primarily involved in contract packing of pharmaceutical and veterinary products, and would welcome new supported employees to the service.
Endeavour Foundation is the largest employer of people with a disability in Australia with more than 1,800 supported employees working at 25 sites throughout Queensland and New South Wales.
