Against a backdrop of covid uncertainty and continuous change within our sector, EverAbility has made significant accomplishments over the past year.
Our Annual Impact Statement for 2021 demonstrates our considerable achievements and the positive difference we’re making to the lives of people with disability and the wider community.
Key events in 2021 include the launch of Perron Place – a new community hub – and securing State Government funding fo new Guide Dogs WA Breeding and Cadet Programs.
We’ve also reached a milestone; Kites Children’s Therapy has been operating for a full year. Meanwhile, long-established VisAbility has provided an impressive sixty thousand hours of service support to clients across Tasmania and Western Australia.
We’ve also welcomed a new CEO, Anna Presser. She brings to her role extensive management experience, fresh ideas, and new perspectives.
“Our staff is at the core of what we do. Over this past year, they have demonstrated fortitude, adaptability, and genuine commitment to purpose. We have continued to review and refine our service provision.”

“I want to thank our team, their tireless efforts as they have transitioned between providing online and face-to-face services.”
Chair of the EverAbility Group Aaron Constantine says the organisation is better placed for 2022.
“In 2021 we’ve refocused on our core services, while also laying foundations for new programs.”
“We sought to better consult and engage with our clients and their networks through newly established Client and Carer Reference Groups.”

EverAbility relies on numerous supporters, funders and partners. It’s due to our volunteers and widespread community engagement, both financially and in-kind, that we’ve met and exceeded goals.
