We know that people with disability are disproportionately impacted by unemployment or underemployment. People with a disability want greater opportunities to fully participate in economic and community life but can sometimes find it hard to get a job and keep it. This is a significant social inequality that exists.
Certified Social Enterprise delivering impact, making a difference and strengthening communities
Waverley through its certified social enterprise services and businesses provides people with disability from the greater Melbourne region, with inclusive and meaningful employment opportunities in a supported work environment. We attract, retain, develop, support and value people with disability. A partnership with Waverley will help Waverley deliver and grow improved employment outcomes for people with a disability and the associated positive social impact.
We find employment brings joy, and promotes health, wellbeing, independence and participation in community life. Partnering with Waverley will help deliver these employment outcomes and make a difference.
A person with a disability has a right to the same employment opportunities as a person without a disability. Partnering with Waverley will help drive social equity, promote social justice and support the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
