Kate MacRae

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

“I am inspired by the heritage of Able Australia. Beginning as a small organisation supporting children with deafblindness, it has grown into a dynamic organisation supporting a diverse range of people. I am proud of the drive and passion in the people who make up our organisation. Our goal is to consolidate and grow our standing in the disability support service sector so we can support even more people. Able has a willingness to do whatever is necessary to ensure our clients can live a better life now and well into the future.”
