Community Programs

Bennu’s belief is that effective rehabilitation and case management must extend well beyond the individual and into the environment if an individual’s life pathway is to be maximised.
With this recognition, underscored by Barry Willer's ‘Whatever It Takes’ (WIT) philosophy, the Bennu team has pioneered new opportunities for thousands of people with disabilities, with Bennu an active and recognised advocate for people with acquired brain injury and neuro-degenerative conditions.

Many significant research projects and pioneering programs have been fostered and contributed to by Bennu, including cross-cultural education for Aboriginal people and breakthrough community programs for people with acquired brain injury. Bennu operates across cultural borders and works in many countries outside of Australia including Japan, Italy and the USA. 

 

Community Services include:
  • Lobbying for community projects, including ministerial, industrial, government and personal presentations to key influencers and industry bodies
  • Preparation of proposals and submissions, including costings and designs for projects to support people with disability

  • Development programs for Community Living options including with group housing of 12 people living together with individual rooms and ensuites
