Who Are We
“The Colosseum Australia" based in Newcastle, NSW - is run for and by people with a disability, their families, friends and the community as a whole. We are devoted to empowering people with disabilities to broaden their social experiences, in a fun, safe and all-inclusive environment.
Everyone is welcome, with or without a disability, to come along to hang out. We have a strong focus on inclusion, building social skills, relationships and capacity building. We are passionate about people with a disability having the same opportunities as people without and being valued members and contributors of the community.
Our duty is to operate within a socially responsible framework by acting in the best interest and for the benefit of the community as a whole.
As a Community Organisation, we have inherent values that we hope to model:
Honesty and Trust: Honesty is the best policy. Without it, there can be no trust.
Kindness and Respect: We invite others to care by proving that we care about them through our own actions.
Transparency and Accountability: We understand and promote the importance of good governance and being able to produce accurate and verifiable records when called upon to do so.
Not everyone has equal abilities but everyone should have equal opportunity.....JFK.
