Supported Employment

Australian Disability Enterprise (ADE)

Employment options to cater for individual needs with no expectations.

HPA is a long-term provider of disability services within the Darwin region. We exist to support those living with disabilities and have provided supported employment, outreach services and accommodation to Territorians since 1963.

HPA operates under the National Disability Service Standards, which govern and define our service delivery policy and its person-centred approach (where people with disability are at the centre of planning and delivery) that provides the basis of our everyday lives.

When you do business with HPA you are not only supporting local Territorians with disabilities but more importantly buying a high quality product and more making a REAL difference at the same time.

Every day we are fully committed to inspire and empower people with disabilities, supporting our employees and residents as they develop confidence, independence and learn life skills to lead a fulfilling everyday life in a world where there are no barriers.
