At Pathfinders, we deliver tailored outdoor and adventure-based programs that promote social inclusion and enable healing for vulnerable young people. Our programs are designed to be accessible and promote pro-social behaviours, internal capacities, and community connections. Depending on the needs of the young person or group, our programs can range from a few hours to a few days in length. We believe that by providing supportive and nurturing environments, we can help young people overcome adversity and build a brighter future.
Our therapeutic adventure programs are open to young people aged 10-17. We conduct both group and individual programs. We have limited spaces available so it’s important to make a referral as soon as possible to secure a spot. These are fee for service programs.

Bindi Mwerre Anthurre Artists
Established in 2000, the Bindi Mwerre Anthurre Artists studio is the first in Australia to occupy the intersection between supported studios and Aboriginal Art Centres.
The studio provides a means for Aboriginal artists living with a disability to develop and receive recognition for their artistic practices by providing supported studio spaces, a national exhibition schedule, design contracts, multimedia collaborations, art fairs and art award opportunities.
The Mwerre Anthurre Artists hail from communities across the Central Desert region – from Kaltukatjara (Docker River) to Yuendumu – yet most reside in Mparntwe (Alice Springs). The painting process is an expression of self and connection to home country – an act that upholds personal and cultural identity.
The Mwerre Anthurre Artists developed out of Bindi Enterprises, which was established in 1978 to provide employment and community engagement opportunities to people with disability. In the 1990’s the late Billy Benn Perrurle started his career painting on off-cuts of timber and sheets of metal from the Bindi workshop. From these humble beginnings, the collective grew into an essential and distinctive Aboriginal Art Centre with several artists creating work that is highly sought after by galleries and private collectors alike.

Carers NT is A Not-for-profit organisation dedicated to improving the lives of carers in the Northern Territory.
Carers are people who provide unpaid care & support to family & friends living with disability, chronic or terminal illness, mental illness, drug or alcohol issues or someone who is frail and aged.
Carers NT is inclusive of all carers and the people they care for, no matter their age, background, ethnicity, religious beliefs or sexual orientation.
Our vision is to have a community in which carers are recognised and valued as a significant asset in which they have access to timely and appropriate services.
We do this by promoting awareness of carers with government funders and the broader community and by giving carers and the person they care for access to services like respite, counselling, music therapy, volunteer support, peer support, advice and information, education and advocacy.
The mental health team at Carers NT offers education and training resources and skills for carers to help them sustain their caring role. We do this by facilitating Accredited Mental Health, Suicide Prevention and Self-Destructive Behaviour workshops which enables carers to identify signs of an impending mental health issue or crisis and provides the tools to assist in increasing the carer’s awareness in mental health, suicide prevention and behavioural issues.
These services help carers build their own capacity and ease some of the pressure for them and their families.
Casa Services Limited
Casa Services Ltd is Central Australia’s premium disability provider with a 40-year history of delivering high quality care to adults with disabilities.
Formed by a group of parents in the 1970s, Casa was welcoming adult tenants with disability into its first group home in 1980 – way ahead of its time and decades before the NDIS.
While retaining the dedicated passion and ethos of its grassroots beginnings, Casa has matured into a large professional NFP provider of high quality support for adults with disabilities with nearly 200 staff and 70 NDIS participants.
It has 18 homes (Supported Independent Living – SIL) with supported-living options including single and shared homes to high-level, complex care.
Casa’s other disability services are also well-regarded and growing. These include day programs of art, cookery, sport and leisure activities, community support, in-home care, and NDIS Plan Management helping participants across Australia to navigate the NDIS.
We pride ourselves on supporting participants to not only fulfil basic daily needs, but to flourish and be fully participating members of their community.
As the oldest, most trusted disability service in Alice Springs – and the only truly local one – our mission is the same as it was in the ’70s: to empower each person in our care to reach their potential with quality, person-centred support based on people’s unique abilities and goals.
