Ballarat Regional Industries Inc., is a social enterprise that empowers and enriches the community through creating creating employment pathways for people with disabilities (participants). In providing 'real' life work and training, in a safe enjoyable environment, people with disabilities are able to live more fulfilling lives, become self-empowered and exercise choice and control over their lives. This results in positive outcomes for themselves, their families and the local community. Our Board has established a strategic plan for the 5 year period 2017 - 2022. Each year builds upon the previous year to attain as et of goals over the 5 year period. Overall priorities are financial sustainability to maximise opportunities for our people, inspire and nurture our people to reach their full potential (participants and staff), share the importance of our mission and the contribution that BRI makes to the local community (financial and social improvements). We have completed the full transition to the NDIS. Our aim for 2020-2021 is to increase employment for people with a disability. Where there is capability and a demand we look to transition our people into open employment. For more information on our activities and type of work provided please visit our website
