Our Mission and Values


A world in which people and communities who experience mental health are socially and economically included through employment and education pathways.


Our mission is to work closely with the Government, member organisations, communities, and employers to lead the provision of employment services for Australians with mental health.

We recognise the employment issues for those with mental illness or disability and support the particular challenges for the minority groups within our community such as indigenous, LGBTIQ,  refugee communities, mature aged people and the disengaged youth.

Ostara Australia is a not-for-profit organisation that works closely with the Australian Government, communities and employers to place people with mental health into sustainable employment.

Our holistic approach is to address both the vocational and non-vocational barriers faced by job seekers. As such, we deliver personalised employment services, whilst also working in collaboration with countless community and welfare organisations to help job seekers with any mental, cultural or emotional challenges.

We believe in helping clients to achieve their personal and professional short- and long-term goals because through achievement, we believe their future will be brighter for not only them, but for their families, friends and the greater community.

Ostara cares about our clients, we want people despite their mental and physical challenges to live a fulfilled and rewarding life.


We seek to be agents of change towards an environment that supports the integration, equity, diversity, recovery and wellbeing of Australians with mental health within the workplace and beyond. 

In our business dealings and our relationships, we act with integrity, respect and professionalism. With innovation and service excellence at the forefront of everything we do, we have created a culture that inspires.
