Achieve Australia is growing in leaps and bounds, as Anne Bryce, CEO, told members and guests at this month’s Business After Hours. The organisation, in the last 120 days, has expanded its facilities and services across wider Sydney to assist even more clients with their NDIS needs, but has also grown locally, cementing Achieve Australia’s footprint in the region where it started; helping locals with disability live extraordinary lives. Anne said that employees may reach the 1,000 level soon – a terrific Achieve-ment.
Achieve Australia is looking for a pop-up shop for its wildly popular fabric, craft and wool shop, which is closing shortly due to redevelopment.
