About Us

Karakan is a for purpose organisation and that purpose of partnering with people to enhance identity, independence and connections guides everything that we do.

A Community to Belong To

We are dedicated to supporting people with mental health challenges, disability, or both to achieve their goals and help build connections with their community to live a more enriched life.

Community is important to everyone. As a local service provider with links and knowledge of the communities we work in, it allows us to be responsive to each person’s needs helping people to build local connections.
