Fairhaven is a not for profit organisation that began as a school in 1962, formed by a group of Central Coast parents who came together with a single goal: to provide education options for their children with intellectual disabilities who were unable to access mainstream schools.
We are a social enterprise established to ensure that people living with disability on the Central Coast live the lives that they aspire to, with a commitment to providing community participation, social skills, employment opportunities, accommodation and living supports.
Fairhaven provides accommodation and care at Kincumber and Ettalong, giving people with disabilities independence and offering full time carers assistance and respite. We provide accommodation and community support across the Central Coast.
We also operate the Supported Employment Enterprise (SEE) business division, Fairhaven CoPack in Tuggerah.
Get in contact to discuss your needs; how we can work with you, or the ways you can get involved with us. Call (02) 4349 5500.
Our updated constitution was adopted by members at the AGM on 15 November 2017. It specifies the rules governing the relationship between and activities of Fairhaven, our Directors and members.
