Our History

Access Australia Group, previously known as Bendigo Access Employment Inc from 1992-2015, was formed in 1992 following the amalgamation of three smaller community employment organisations, and then expanded with the merger of Continuing Education Bendigo in 2014.

The name change from Bendigo Access Employment to Access Australia Group was to ensure that both employment and training services were better represented, along with diversifying its business and social enterprises.

Access Australia Group has grown to what is today a large and diverse not-for-profit, community based organisation. Access Australia Group is a registered public benevolent institution. As an internationally accredited organisation, the continuing focus of operations is to provide superior customer service and be an employer of choice.
