Endeavour Foundation is an independent not-for-profit organisation supporting people with a disability in more than 4,000 placements from more than 230 locations in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. These include accommodation, education, training, vocational and lifestyle opportunities.
We are one of Queensland's oldest charities, founded in 1951 by a group of parents who refused to accept their children with an intellectual disability couldn't be educated. Forming a makeshift school on a verandah in Coorparoo, Brisbane, these courageous women taught their children basic numeracy, literacy and life skills, and advocated for change. Through their early efforts, the organisation has grown into one of the leading disability support services in the country.
