Our Story

When a small group of concerned parents met in Tamworth Town Hall back in 1958 and formed the Tamworth and District Handicapped Children’s Association and school, the idea of becoming one of the largest community support services operating in New South Wales was probably beyond their wildest dreams.
Challenge Community Services now supports thousands of people in over 100 communities in NSW and QLD.
