We serve a person, not a need
The need is important and helps define the care, but you are more important – you are not your disability – and our focus is finding the best for you through participant-centred, customised, quality care. We believe everyone deserves to live an abundant life, empowered to be all that they can be.
We are a great place to work and value our staff
We invest in them, train them, celebrate them and reward them for their effort. Our support workers are the best of who we are and provide quality care that makes a meaningful difference.
We keep the safety in and kick the boring out!
We believe in thinking outside the box and colouring outside the lines. We don’t follow the way it’s always been done. While we keep things safe and provide good governance, we also try new things. We experiment. We push the boundaries of what people thought possible. And most importantly, we have fun doing it! The people we serve every day are full of colour – we don’t believe in limits or lines!
We support community
We are passionate about community transformation and get involved in the community wherever we open a new branch of our business. We believe our nation will be different tomorrow because of the way we do business in local communities today.
We value our future and yours
We operate with integrity and choose sustainable business practices so that we are successful and able to invest in our future and in yours.

About Avas Support
Avas Support Pty Ltd. was established in July of 2019 in response to witnessing participants being mismatched with unsuitable support workers. This created a problem of unhappy participants’ needs not being met, goals not being achieved, and desires ignored.
We aim to solve this problem by hand picking caring individuals, providing them with quality training and matching them with participants where they can support them to meet their needs, achieve their goals and create a fulfilling life. With this custom approach we aim to be a service that represents quality and exudes integrity; delivering the service exactly how we claim to.
