Cara is a not-for-profit organisation, or, as we like to say, Cara is a profit-for-purpose. It means our profits are reinvested in benefits for our STAKEHOLDERS – our customers.
Easy English flyers are for anyone with lower literacy.
We want our communications to be accessible and we aim to provide Easy English documents as often as we can.
Service Agreements and Rates
Cara utilise Service Agreements to ensure that the responsibilities and wishes of the person, and responsibilities of Cara are clear and agreed upon.
Through our work with people with a wide range of disabilities, we understand that the “regular” shopping experience can be too overwhelming for some.
Bright lights, strong smells, music and pager messages can create a sensory overload, which isn’t uncommon for people with autism.
That’s why we created Quiet Hour. Already a success in the UK, Cara brought Quiet Hour to Australia in a national first in May, 2016.
