We have a passionate team of people here at Belonging Australia who are skilled to assist our members to make meaningful relationships.
Belonging Australia has been a dream of founder and managing director Charlotte Knox since 2012 and is actualizing in 2020. Charlotte’s passion for working with people with disabilities was ignited when she started working for Disability Services Commission in 2011. One of Charlotte’s roles with the Commission was to meet with a range of individuals across WA and allocate funding to appropriately support them. This service was provided to Teens, Adults, as well as School Leavers transitioning into independent living.
It became apparent to Charlotte after multiple parents expressing their concerns about their loved ones missing out on meaningful connections, that there was a gap in services to support making these important connections.
Charlotte has worked in various industries since her 3 years at the Commission, but she has continued part time work as a carer for a young woman with a disability. Charlotte is so excited to now be creating spaces for people she is passionate about supporting to find meaningful friendships and even true love.
