People, everywhere in our community, will experience the power of inclusion through relationships, voice and action. This is our vision.

When a small group of concerned parents met in Tamworth Town Hall back in 1958 and formed the Tamworth and District Handicapped Children’s Association and school, the idea of becoming one of the largest community support services operating in New South Wales was probably beyond their wildest dreams.

Challenge Community Services now has 68 sites across NSW and a workforce of over 620 people, including 85 employees with a disability. Challenge Community Services is now the fourth largest provider of out-of-home care in NSW providing foster care services to over 500 children.

Wonderful company very supportive. Mission focused

Management from CEO to line manager are very supportive. CEO often visits sites. Line mangers get involved with clients and understands the issues. Wonderful sense of culture

This company is a joke... Ask them why there are so many available positions

Management structure is terrible, absolutely no concept of the disability industry, only care about the money, not the clients. Sadly this was a leader in this industry, but with the change of management structures from the CEO to the regional managers, the company has fallen to the ground. Not a nice place to work, noone cares about the staff or clients
