Our Mission and Values

Our Mission and Values

Ostara Australia is a national not-for-profit organisation that works closely with the Australian Government, communities and employers to place people disadvantaged through age, health, disability or cultural background into sustainable employment.

Our holistic approach is to address both the vocational and non-vocational barriers faced by disadvantaged 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.


A world in which people and communities who experience disadvantage are socially and economically included.


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

We recognise the employment issues for individuals disadvantaged through mental illness or disability, and support the particular challenges for indigenous and refugee communities, mature aged people and the youth.


We seek to be agents of change towards an environment that supports the integration, equity, diversity, recovery and wellbeing of disadvantaged Australians 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.
