About Activ

Activ is the largest disability support provider in Western Australia registered under the NDIS. We provide individualised services for people living with disability and their families.

We are seeking like-minded individuals to join us in supporting our customers to achieve their goals. We want leading experts to use their skills to help enrich the lives of our customers and society as a whole.
