Interactionz is a charity, focused on building better lives and better communities, by supporting people to live their most meaningful life.

Mentoring

Our personalised mentoring service is designed to help persons with disabilities take practical steps to develop the skills needed to overcome barriers and work toward living a more self-determined, rewarding and independent life in the community.

Training Services

Our qualified educators deliver facilitated learning experiences to community organisations to develop your team’s skills and improve the way your organisation delivers services so the people you serve can live a more rewarding life as part of the community.

By educating others we spread those benefits to the largest number of people, in the shortest possible time.

Visualisation services

Our talented Visualisation Team can bring your ideas to life in many different ways; Live Illustration, Strategic Planning, Strategic Communication and Infographics, to name a few...

We work closely with you to understand what you want to achieve, before recommending the best service to meet your needs.

Our Social Impact

Not all people have the same opportunities to access, and be included in, the life of their communities. Through our Mentoring and Training services, Interactionz facilitates opportunities that both help people to explore and experience what they want from their lives, and contribute to building communities where all can thrive. Customers who purchase our Visualisation services assist us in fulfilling our vision.
