Minda Inc. (Craigburn Nursery)
What does this organisation do?
Minda Inc. is a leading supplier of services for people with a disability in SA. It supports over 1700 people with disabilities with over 400 of these engaged in supported employment in 13 Australian Disability Enterprises (ADE)s. Minda is progressively changing it ADE model to a Social Enterprise model by employing not only people with disability but also people with a social disadvantage including economic, age, cultural and religious.
The relocation and transformation of the existing Craigburn ADE model nursery is an example of that transformation. Craigburn Nursery must be relocated due to encroaching housing development and its concurrent transformation to a Social Enterprise model is the economic alternative to its closure ( and the subsequent loss of 30 + jobs for people with a disability) when the new NDIS funding model comes into force.
People who are experiencing discrimination or disadvantage due to personal circumstances
We all expect to be treated with respect and afforded the same opportunity. Yet some people experience disadvantage as a result of discrimination.
People with a disability or chronic health issue
Living with a disability or long term or chronic health issue can severely affect our wellbeing through unemployment or underemployment, social isolation or exclusion and poor mental or physical health.
