About Challenge Community Services

58 years ago we were a small band of parents and friends seeking support services for our children with disabilities. Today, Challenge has grown to be one of the largest community support services in New South Wales. We provide support to over 1000 people from Albury to Lismore, Sydney, Dubbo, Tamworth and beyond. With over 500 staff, 130 of which have a disability, we strive to comply with and exceed all standards required under State and Federal Acts.
