Connecting people and possibility for over 75 years
At Holdsworth, what we do is all about you. That’s why everything we do, we do it together. We believe in partnering with communities to inspire human connection, and we believe in new possibilities.
Supporting people to maintain their independence and enhance their quality of life is at the heart of what we do, and we work across disability, aged care and families to improve access, tailor support and create connections.
Connection, care and community:
creating the best outcomes, together

The Voice Project has announced one of their Best Workplace Awards for 2023, and you might initially picture a funky tech firm with a ping pong table and all-you-can-drink prune juice.

Lavania participated in our HomeShare program for almost three years, living with home owner Margaret. Holdsworth’s HomeShare is designed to connect housemates for a mutually beneficial living situation, and Lavania’s presence at Margaret’s house meant her family had confidence she was safe and comfortable in her own home, and that Lavania’s wonderful cooking would make Margaret’s evening meal enjoyable when Margert is not at her children’s for dinner!
