Everyday people living with disability and disadvantage are turning to Bedford for a ‘hand up.’

We are a not-for profit organisation providing employment and training through our furniture, hospitality, horticulture, packaging, and various regional Australian Disability Enterprises (ADE's). In addition, life skills education is offered through our Day Options program and key residential services in metropolitan and regional communities as well as accredited training while learning on the job.

Bedford employs South Australia’s most vulnerable people through our diverse business areas throughout metropolitan Adelaide, on the Yorke Peninsula with locations at Port Pirie, Wallaroo and Kadina, in the South East at Mount Gambier and Millicent, on the Eyre Peninsula at Port Lincoln and more recently in Silverwater, New South Wales. We are delivering accredited training to our supported employees and those of other disability employers through our ‘Abilities for All’ program.

An integral part of our service is the availability of pathways between programs and locations to ensure each individual can choose the best options and opportunities for them. Bedford not only has a significant impact on those living with disability or disadvantage but also on their families, friends and ultimately their entire community.

Our vision is to change lives!
