How your support helps

When you purchase lottery tickets from Endeavour Foundation, you help to provide opportunities for people with an intellectual disability to:

  • learn life skills
  • live independently
  • find a job they love
  • be actively involved in their communities

These opportunities help to build independence, confidence and self-esteem, and contributes to a sense of well-being and connection with the community, while building essential skills for daily life.

What your ticket purchase can achieve ...

Endeavour Foundation are excited to announce the final stages of construction on two new accessible homes for people with a disability in Innisfail, Queensland and we are now planning to start construction on a further seven new homes for people we support.

The residents of the Innisfail properties have been visiting their new homes regularly and helping choose furniture and window coverings for their house. They are getting very excited to move in!

Soon, we will have officially built five new homes in five years for people with a disability thanks to our At Home With Choices project.

These contemporary houses will look like any other, but will be packed with special features that assist people with an intellectual disability to live independently in the community. With assistive living technologies like built-in help/alert buttons, residents can call for assistance whenever needed, while living as independently as possible in their own home.

People with a disability currently living in Endeavour Foundation’s At Home With Choices houses have enjoyed an improved quality of life and a sense of personal independence that comes from managing household tasks like cleaning, washing and cooking.

Accommodation

Your support builds modern accessible houses so that people with a disability can have more choice about where and with whom they live. Through the At Home With Choices project we can offer people a chance to be more independent, develop their living skills and exercise more control over their lives.

Our At Home With Choices dwellings are equipped with smart technology to support people with a disability to live independent and safe and connected lives in the community. The people who have moved in have told us how much they enjoy sharing a house with friends and all of the new choices that are available.
