Wellways Australia Limited is a leading not-for-profit mental health and disability support organisation with services in Queensland, New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory, Victoria and Tasmania. Our services span mental health, disability and community care, and reach thousands of people each year.
We work with a diverse range of people living with mental health issues or various disabilities. We connect people, strengthen families and transform communities. We work with individuals of all ages experiencing disabilities or challenges to their social and emotional wellbeing. This can include creating a home, securing a job and building meaningful relationships.
We were established in 1978 by families advocating to improve the services, information and support available to people with mental health issues, their carers, families and communities. Our commitment to advocacy is central to the work we do today, because we know that advocacy opens the door to participation in the community, including employment, housing and relationships. Our active advocacy membership supports these goals.
