Orana celebrates 70 years

Orana celebrates 70 years

As we move into a new decade, 2020 is a special year for Orana. On 10th August 2020, we will celebrate our 70 year anniversary of supporting people with disability and working towards creating a more inclusive society for all.

We have a long and proud history of supporting people with disability. From our humble beginnings where a small group of progressive and visionary parents seeking opportunities for their children with intellectual disability met at a public meeting in Adelaide in 1950, to becoming one of SA’s largest and respected disability service providers, Orana has evolved and developed along with the disability sector over the past 70 years.

Dedicated to our vision of a society where people with disability are equal citizens, we have played an active role in improving awareness and progressing the nature of disability support in Australia.

On our journey through the evolution of disability support, we shifted our focus from ‘caring for people’ to ‘supporting people’ by providing them with the skills to become more independent as individuals and as members of our community. Now our goal is clear, to ‘empower people’ to live the life they choose.

As we now support people in the NDIS, we continue to drive innovation and deliver progressive quality services and safeguards for all people with disability.

We look forward to continuing on our journey, driven by the vision of a society where people with disability are a part of our mainstream society.

These are exciting times for Orana. We hope you share our excitement and enthusiasm as we press forward with a renewed commitment to the future!
