In 1987 A-Way Express was established by survivors of mental health challenges to provide meaningful employment for survivors able to work.  They created a supportive business environment that promotes stability and recovery for all staff.  This model has continued to this day.

 

We admire and respect A-Way and all the people who make it such a success. They inspire us in our own efforts to make a positive contribution to our community.

A-Way History

 

A-Way is no ordinary courier company.  It was founded in 1987 by people with lived experience of mental health issues specifically to provide meaningful work for all survivors. As well as employment, structure and income it provides community and support, replacing isolation.

A-Way is at times referred to as the ‘first social enterprise’, having been established long before the term existed. Since then, both A-Way and the social enterprise sector have come a long way.
