What do you enjoy about working with Motivation Australia? Motivation Australia is a small team that does an enormous amount of work. They are supportive and always excited about taking on new challenges and projects to support people with a mobility disability. I love being a part of a team of people that are dedicated and passionate about what they do: and seeing the immediate benefits of the work that we do for the people we work with.
