About OAK

OAK has been leader in disability training and employment in Tasmania for more than 50 years.

Oak is committed to providing practical and meaningful training and employment opportunities for people with a disability in Tasmania.

We are part of the Oak Possability group of businesses and services that work with people with disability and children at risk to help them achieve satisfying and purposeful lives.

Our Purpose

We are catalysts for change.

Our actions are based on our belief that freedom and independence are fundamental human rights.

Our Vision

A world where everyone has the opportunity to pursue their potential.


We take a person centered approach, focusing on the aspirations, expectations and needs of each individual. Our highly skilled team will support you to develop skills and confidence to reach your goals.

Our organisation is grounded in family and community. We believe in the rights and responsibilities of all individuals and that every person has a right to be treated with dignity and respect.

We create an inclusive and supportive environment for people to learn and develop, benefiting both work and home life.

Choice and Control

The National Disability Insurance Scheme is all about choice and control. We are NDIS ready and here to support you with your plan.

Quality Assurance and Safeguarding Children

Some of our core principles are to produce high quality products, exceed the expectation of our customers and to implement continual improvement processes throughout the organisation.  To support these principles we have implemented the ISO 9001:2008 Standards and have achieved certification of our quality management system.

We take seriously our responsibility to deliver a support environment that is caring, nurturing and safe. We are currently working towards accreditation in the Safeguarding Children Program with the Australian Childhood Foundation.

In preparation for accreditation, we have developed and implemented a number of policies and procedures that reflect our commitment to safeguarding children and young people.  Furthermore, we continue to build a strong and collective organisational culture which is focused on delivering safe, best practice outcomes for children, young people and their families.
