Enable West Australia has been supporting individuals and their families living with disability, mental health, ageing and with short or long term health issues, since 1991.

Enable West Australia is dedicated to creating support mechanisms which empower people, giving them the opportunity to build a life of their choice – a life filled with the same adventures, challenges, joys and love that many of us take for granted.

CFAA is actively working with community services organisations to ensure those that care for others are highly qualified to deliver these specialised services.

CFAA’s is committed to recognising the professional skills and life experience that people in the service of others already have. Through a Recognition of Prior Learning process, nine local Enable West Australia employees have gained their Certificate III in Individual Support (Disability).

CFAA’s mandate as a multi-award winning RTO, is to ensure that our local community is supported by highly qualified community services and health professionals. We have a vested interest, as we live and work locally.

‘Enable South West, were quick to seize the opportunity for their team to gain qualifications in alignment with the roll out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme’, said CFAA’s Director Jane Goff.

‘It has been wonderful that the skills and experiences of our dedicated Support Staff Team have been formally recognised. It will also provide an opportunity for career pathways to open up for those staff members as they are now able to demonstrate the value of the work they undertake.’ Rhea Tansell – Chief Operations Officer – Enable WA
