Supporting employment for people living with disability

13 Feb 2017

Based in regional Victoria, Pinnacle have been providing services for people with a disability as well as supporting their families and carers, and the community for over 35 years.

Pinnacle now employ more than 100 staff and provide their innovative range of services, respite and employment opportunities to over 250 people. These services include five small community-based businesses that employ people with a disability in areas ranging from gardening services and embroidery & logo branding services to commercial laundering.

Pinnacle began their relationship with Bendigo Bank and Community Sector Banking when CEO Brian Burke was on the founding board of the local Ararat Community Enterprise. This community organisation creates an income base that supports local community projects, organisations and clubs through revenue received from its partners, the main one being Bendigo Bank.

“Pinnacle is so happy with our banking relationship with Bendigo Bank and Community Sector Banking. They understand our not-for-profit organisation and appreciate the challenges that we face,” said Mr Burke.
