From humble beginnings nearly 70 years ago, Afford is now one of Australia’s longest-serving disability service providers in Australia and is a proud sponsor of two of our disability connection expos next year .
We are excited to have Afford as a major sponsor for Developing Australian Communities' Melbourne and Sydney Disability Connection Expos next year. Australian Foundation for Disability (Afford), is a registered National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provider and is dedicated to helping people with disabilities live an empowered life.
Afford’s mission has always been to provide innovative, flexible and high quality support to enhance lifestyle, learning and vocational opportunities for people with disability, their families and carers since 1952.
From support and accommodation to events and even holidays, Afford has participants, their carers and families covered.
The organisation helps its participants discover new life experiences, work options and embrace social and balanced lifestyles.
Afford offers this support through supported and short-term accommodation and day programs, allied health services and support and employment co-ordination.
The organisation also offers the unique Club Afford experience - a membership-based social group that promotes social activities, healthy living, fun and exploration of the local community.
Afford’s events and activities are exclusive, exciting and participants are guaranteed to have fun.
But that is not all - Afford Getaways will help you plan the perfect holiday too!
Afford believes travel should be accessible for everyone and proudly offers the opportunity for friends, family and carers to travel together on their holiday and have a great time knowing their loved one has the necessary support staff for an amazing experience.
All travel, accommodation and meals are included as part of a package for participants and holidays can be completely personalised.

Afford are proud leaders in the disability sector and have fostered a reputation for best-practice approaches to service delivery under the NDIS.
“The Afford difference is not only our relentless commitment to delivering the highest quality support on offer in the disability sector but that at Afford, we genuinely care” , a spokesperson for Afford said.
Afford’s journey across Australia started in 1952 with the formation of the The Poliomyelitis Society of Australia, at the height of the world’s devastating polio epidemic.
From the founding site at the Cherrywood Hospital in Turramurra, NSW, Afford has spread its wings to now providing award winning care and support across Australia.
You can catch up with them and find out more about their wonderful services at the 2022 Disability Connection Expos!
