New Premises

November 11, 2018

Exciting news

After more than 30 years at Laureston Avenue Papatoetoe, it is with great pleasure to advise you that we have relocated to an upgraded facility, some 4 times larger than we had. The new location is at 50 Lovegrove Crescent, Otara. The new location offers the same services as the current building.

For some time, we have been looking at finding bigger premises for Attainable Trust. It has become obvious to us over the past year that we need a bigger space due to safety concerns, and our desire to grow our factory and kitchen so that we can employ more people with disabilities. Furthermore, our numbers for Community Participation have risen over the past year, and we want to be able to offer them more space for more activities.

We would like to express our gratitude and sincere thanks for all the support and cooperation of our families, caregivers, MIT, schools, kitchen and factory clients. We look forward to occupying the new space while continuing to provide the same quality service and compassion that we have always demonstrated.

Please contact Lou Piezzo (09 216 7366) or myself (09 279 2610) if you have any questions. Thank you.

Learning at Attainable

Learning Opportunities at Attainable Trust – Our Commitment to our Employees

In collaboration with Edvance (a workplace education provider), our employees attended 10 weeks training on “workplace health and safety and communication skills”. The training was for 4 hours every week for 10 weeks.

At the graduation ceremony, the employees shared what they learned during class, and they expressed their gratitude towards Attainable and Edvance tutors for their time in the class. Training and upskilling our employees is one of our priorities. It supports our mission which is to provide suitable employment in a safe environment for people with disabilities or social disadvantages, and to assist our people to develop their personal and earning capabilities.

We hope the training provided goes beyond the work they do at Attainable Trust, and hopefully it can help them lead better overall lives.
