Northaven is a well respected employment and life skills provider service for people living with disability. We are an NDIS approved provider. Northaven was established in 1969 by local community members and families to create employment, training, life skills and social opportunities for people living with disabilities both within their own home, outside of home and within the wider community of Inverell and surrounding areas. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for people living with disability by offering paid employment opportunities, wherein individuals are trained through formal and on the job training in a work environment while building confidence and dignity, developing personal skills and earning respect in the wider community as an economic contributor to society.
Northaven is committed to providing a safe, caring and non-discriminating work environment that allows for the delivery of a person-centered service to each individual.
Northaven's life skills promotes and supports and individuals right to choice and control in participating in daily life skills, social and recreational activities both individually and as a group
Northaven employees and staff care about the environment. We are working quietly in the background doing our part towards preserving the planet for future generations through our business operations of sorting and capturing as much recyclable product through its Material Recovery Facility (MRF) and security shredding before it enters the council landfill site.
Through these practices Northaven aims to be an active participant in:
Minimizing the environmental impact and emission of greenhouse gases omitted from the landfill site through reduction of recyclable product entering the landfill site.
Increasing longevity of the site and reduces the financial and environmental burden to the local community and government
Continuing to provide “real jobs” for people living with disability
Northaven provides real paid employment and training ( accredited & non accredited) for individuals that supports their economic contribution to society. Northaven supports individuals choice and control in developing practical life skills and provide social, recreational and community participation of an individuals choice within their own lives and community
