Afford Australian Disability Enterprises (ADEs) offer meaningful employment to hundreds of people living with disability. They are also workplaces that create a supportive environment where you can learn new skills and make friends along the way.
More Than Just A Job
When you work alongside friends every day, your daily tasks never seem to feel like work. Afford ADEs are vibrant, productive and positive workplaces. Employees look forward to walking through the doors of their ADE and produce their best work while they’re there.
Form Strong Friendships at Work
Some employees have worked for Afford for many years, so they know the processes and procedure inside and out. They are all willing to help their mates on any task, to ensure the job gets done.
There is such a strong sense of mateship among employees at Afford ADEs, that factory Team Leaders have now established ADE Social Clubs for all Afford ADE sites across Sydney. The social club is about going out with your friends from work and getting to know them a little better.
Socialise with Others Outside of Work
The outings give everyone the chance to chat in a relaxed setting. It also makes it easier for everyone to get to know each other a little better.
The most recent ADE Social Club outing was to the bowling alley! The Marrickville, Prestons and Ingleburn sites each organised a group to head out to their local bowling alley.
Meeting at their ADE everyone heads out together in an Afford van so that the fun begins right from the get-go.
There was a friendly competition across the events. There were lots of strikes and a few misses too. Everyone banded together to support each other. The camaraderie among attendees was amazing.
Each bowling outing was a huge success with all attendees wanting to know what was next on the social club’s agenda.
These social outings give employees the chance to celebrate friendship. They are outings that strengthen existing bonds and also allow new employees to the factories to get to know their workmates.
