The Co-Founders

Access Ability Australia is an intervention idea founded on the experience of the two Co-Founders, Maxine Parker and Judy O’Connor.

With over 30 years of combined experience working within disability, education and community with adults and children, both Maxine and Judy have a wealth of professional and lived experience of disability. Maxine has a hearing impairment and Judy is the parent of a child with a disability.

Meet our AAA Mascots

Hi there, It’s me, Milo! You’ll see me getting around town wearing my AAA cap.

I’d like you to meet my family and friends.

All of us are a little different – but that won’t stop us! Some of my friends were born with a disability and some of us acquired one along the way. We might be different but that is not who we are. We want what everyone else wants. To be happy and have fun.

Grandma says, now thanks to Access Keys, we visit many new places. Access Keys give us all a gift of confidence and the peace of mind in knowing which venues suit our needs. We love how Access Keys allow us to prepare ahead of time. We all feel less worried about visiting new places because Access Keys help us to understand what to expect before we arrive. Being prepared means we can all enjoy a successful day out and that goes for our friends and family too!

My buddies and I are going on many new adventures and we can’t wait for you to join us.

Access Keys…..unlocking your world.

Our Shared Vision

We are the proud founders of a better way…. a way to decrease barriers and to increase enablers. Together with our AAA Network members, we have created a platform that supports an innovative social inclusion movement that best supports the broader community, regardless of ability, now and into the future.

Access Ability Australia truly value seeing the positive difference our products and services deliver. Word of mouth advocacy in-explicitly builds and extends upon our first-rate reputation.

Customers and users of Access Keys recognise our Access Keys and AAA brand and associate it with the high quality and standards that we have worked hard to develop and pride ourselves on.

It is our belief that through the provision of Access Ability Australia’s Access Keys, our shared vision of authentic inclusion can become a reality now and into the future.
