One of Queensland’s largest disability service providers, Endeavour Foundation, has unveiled a vibrant new brand ahead of the Brisbane rollout of one of Australia’s largest social reforms, the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
In an event held at Brisbane Powerhouse, the iconic not-for-profit showcased its vibrant new look, along with a suite of new tools and services to demonstrate its evolution.
CEO of Endeavour Foundation, Andrew Donne, said the rebrand was a visual representation of the evolution the organisation was going through and he was confident customers would be empowered by the move.
“We’re evolving to work even more collaboratively with our customers, their families and our extensive network of partners to imagine what’s possible for people with disability,” he said.
“We want to be known as #teampossible – the people with the enthusiasm and desire to make our customers happy and empowered,” Mr Donne said.
Mr Donne said a key part of Endeavour Foundation’s evolution would involve improving its support of young people through learning, supported independent living and employment to make their possibilities a reality.
“Endeavour Foundation is rolling out new initiatives including “Wired”, combining eLearning with Virtual Reality, a new series of 10-week learning courses geared at the individual needs of school-leavers, and the “Connect” app, enabling carers and people with a disability to stay connected,” he said.
“People with disability see their friends and family go out to work, further their opportunities through learning and live in their own home - they want those same opportunities.”
Bede Dow who accesses Endeavour Foundation’s Learning and Lifestyle service in Kingston said he loved being an ambassador for the rebrand.
“I felt proud of being in the new brand video. I like being on #teampossible and I think the new brand shows people with intellectual disability can do something unusual and step out of the box,” Mr Dowe said.
“I’ll have more choice under the NDIS but I’ll choose Endeavour Foundation because they are like a family to me,” he said.
Endeavour Foundation’s new brand is expected to be rolled out across all regional and metropolitan sites over the coming months. From July 1, the NDIS will roll out across suburbs in north and south Brisbane, Logan and Redlands, Gold Coast and Hinterland, and in more regional locations, representing Endeavour Foundation’s largest customer base transitioning to the NDIS yet.
