A truly wonderful organisation. Afford make incredible differences in the lives of people with disability every day — they go the extra mile every time and are always a pleasure to deal with. Keep up the awesome work!
Afford was our savour after we had a bad time. Afford helped Steven get a job and some self esteem, something he really need! They have helped him in every way. He still goes to the Blacktown lifestyle centre.
I love my room here. I chose the colours myself. I also love my bike, my bed and my own TV. It’s my own space to be myself.
I will always be grateful to the Afford staff for all their help they gave me, and keep giving Luis (and me) following his transplant. It was an extremely stressful time and they worked with me to make sure that Luis’ health, his physical and emotional needs were met. For Luis, the opportunity to spend time with others and enjoy activities has really made a difference in his life.
Afford Liverpool are very persistent and helpful. They never gave up on me. I love my job. It’s really empowering to do something I enjoy, top build on my skills and it’s really boosted my confidence.
I loved travelling to Disneyland. It was a ten year dream that I had and I had such a great time going on the rides, seeing the movie characters and having fun with my friends.
