Access Australia Group

Access Australia Group is the new name of Bendigo Access Employment. Formed in 1992 following the amalgamation of three smaller community employment organisations, and then expanded with the merger of Continuing Education Bendigo in 2014 and more recently Our Shed and Twelve Arts in Eaglehawk, Access Australia Group has grown to become a large and diverse not-for-profit, charitable, community based organisation. Access Australia Group is a registered public benevolent institution. As an ISO internationally accredited organisation, the continuing focus of Access Australia Group’s operations is to provide superior customer service and be an employer of choice.

Access Australia Group is a disability employment service, registered training organisation, disability service provider and offers social inclusion opportunities as well as providing payroll services and a range of services within the National Disability Insurances Scheme.

Through its range of social enterprises, Access Australia Group works to strengthen our community using innovation, entrepreneurship and trade to create social benefit.
