Who we are

Where it all started

It started sixty years ago in Melbourne’s west. A group of parents realised that getting together as a group is the best way to make sure their children with disability had a better start in life.

These parents spoke to other people in the community to raise awareness about the importance of including everyone in what community has to offer. Support grew for this idea and more people joined in to support their vision. An organisation was born. Today annecto works in communities across Melbourne Metro, the Loddon MalleeGrampians region of Victoria, Sydney Metro, Mid North Coast and Orana Far West regions of NSW, Queensland’s Sunshine Coast and the ACT.

We respect and value all aspects of a person, including gender identity or expression, race, language, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, elder status, clan, family structure, culture, subculture, self-expression, identity, self-identification.
