New provider announced for Noah’s Ark WA

The Independent Living Centre WA (ILC) is pleased to announce that Activ will be the new service provider for Noah’s Ark WA.

ILC Acting Chief Executive Officer Francine Snadden said we are delighted that the Noah’s Ark WA service will be continuing and congratulate Activ on being the successful applicant.

“Activ has a long history of providing personalised, individually tailored support to people with a disability and their families and Noah’s Ark WA will flourish under the organisation,” she said.

The ILC announced last October that it was unable to continue delivering the Noah’s Ark WA service for financial reasons.

Mrs Snadden said following overwhelming public support for the service to continue, the ILC has worked diligently to source an alternate provider for Noah’s Ark WA.

“An expression of interest process identified Activ as best meeting the needs of the service, based on predetermined criteria,” she said.

“I would also like to thank all the applicants who expressed an interest in taking on Noah’s Ark WA. The standard of all the applications was extremely high and all showed high merits.”

Activ Chief Executive Officer Danielle Newport said that Activ is excited by the possibilities that it could explore with Noah’s Ark WA.

“We are looking forward to taking on this new and exciting program. For over 20 years, we have operated the Activ Library – which holds the largest collection of resources on intellectual disability and autism in the Southern Hemisphere. By combining with Noah’s Ark WA, we believe we can offer a state-of-the-art resource centre for Western Australians living with disability and their families.”

The ILC is now working towards transitioning Noah’s Ark WA to Activ.

Activ is planning to re-open the Noah’s Ark Toy Library from the Morley location in mid-March.

Any queries about the service should be directed to the Activ Library on 9387 0458 or
