Fighting Chance

Introducing Avenue

Avenue is a social enterprise retail business which sources quality handmade products produced by disabled artisans both locally and around the world. The products are sold to Australian consumers at community markets and through our online Avenue Store.

The idea behind Avenue is to create a range of opportunities for people with disabilities in Sydney, including employment, skills development, work experience, and vocational participation. Avenue’s design, with heavy reliance on IT-related work roles and the incorporation of the weekend market program, makes Avenue an idea forum for people with physical disabilities.

Furthermore, Avenue sources its wears from artisans with disabilities, both here in Australia and in developing countries around the world like Nepal, Cambodia and India, and by doing so creates employment opportunities for people with disabilities in those communities as well.
