Providing Supported Employment to People With Special Needs

The feeling of independence attained through working is something many people take for granted. However, for people with special needs, many have to fight to feel that independence. At Waverley, we’re proud to give people with special needs the opportunity to enjoy supported employment opportunities and participate in Social Enterprise in Melbourne so they too can enjoy the independence they deserve. Whether you’re looking for flexible packaging companies, catering or assembly services, contact one of our sites at Notting Hill or Hallam.

Established in November of 1984, Waverley (Waverley Industries Ltd) has been at the forefront of providing structured and supportive employment opportunities for Melburnians with special needs across the three key areas of our business: catering, packaging and assembly.

We are a not-for-profit organisation with more than 360 people with special needs working at both our Notting Hill and Hallam sites. We’re proud to give adults with an intellectual disability the opportunity to discover and exert their independence in a supportive working environment.

We Offer a Range of Different Services to Suit Your Business

Waverley places people with special needs in positions of employment across the assembly, packaging and catering industries. Our social enterprise catering has rapidly grown in popularity over recent years, and – through Social Enterprises Melbourne and on-the-job training – provides employees with opportunities to work in one of the most dynamic service industries.

Our hard-working team prepares and cooks all meals fresh daily, seven days a week, from our state-of-the-art catering facilities at Notting Hill. Come to us if you’re looking for one or more of the following:

  • Special order catering
  • Breakfast
  • Buffet and banquet
  • Cocktail function
  • Lunchbox
  • And more

We provide catering services for a vast range of business, including local councils, government departments, community groups, schools and other not-for-profit organisations.

Staff Testimonials

I like making new friends and learning new skills. Waverley Industries has given me the chance and are supporting me in my apprenticeship in Commercial Cookery. I feel really good that I am learning and contributing.

I like working at Waverley Industries as I have made good friends. I like the jobs and the staff are friendly and supportive.

I like the jobs that I do at Waverley Industries, especially William Adams where I have to cut tubes. I have lots of friends here and I love coming to work everyday. The support staff are always nice to me and they treat me well. My husband also works here but we are in different groups.
