Valued Lives Microenterprise Project
Microenterprises encourage you to think about an alternative pathway to work that connects you with your local community and is aligned to your abilities, timeframes and passions.
We believe everyone has the right to work and should have access to flexible and tailored supports to enable you to build capacity and skills to gain meaningful employment.
Our Microenterprise Project Team was recognised for this vital work when they won the Excellence in Improving Employment Opportunities award at the prestigious WA Disability Support Awards night in 2019. They were nominated for this award by one of the project participants who has benefited greatly from the support and guidance received from the team.

Discover local businesses run by people with disability
Our online microenterprise directory portal is an online directory where any person with a disability who has their own microenterprise can advertise and promote their business free of charge.
We know that there are many people with disabilities who are currently operating microenterprise businesses across Australia and we created the microenterprise website with the directory portal in order to showcase their great work.
If you are a microenterprise business owner or an organisation that knows someone who may be interested in showcasing their business online, please get in touch.
Microenterprise Hub Space
The Fremantle Microenterprise Hub is a whole community space where vulnerable community members can co-share office space to operate their microenterprises in a supportive community and can develop and run their own small business with the support and mentoring of the Valued Lives Microenterprise Project team who are based at the Hub.
