Every year, Western Australian Disability Enterprises (WADE) hold an event to celebrate the incredible employment outcomes achieved for people with disability. Come and see for yourself what we can accomplish at the special Business Expo!
An outstanding year for social enterprises
WADE is made up of eight organisations: Activ, Good Samaritan Industries, Goodwill Engineering, Interlife, Paraquad Industries, Shire of Manjimup, Westcare, and of course, Workpower.
Together, we provide over 2,500 jobs for people with disability across a wide range of industries.
As an alliance, we’ve gained over $48 million in new business. Our work with a growing number of local and state governments, businesses, and organisations means not only quality products and services, but long-term social outcomes.
For example, did you know we’re the first choice provider for the Department of Fire & Emergency Services (DFES)? We supply, maintain, and repair emergency equipment on multiple locations across WA. The contract also allows us to provide employment for our supported employees, and opportunities for training and career development, like Harley!
As this year’s hosts, we’re delighted to invite you to join us for the ceremony and Business Expo, sponsored by the Department of Finance. Guests are invited to engage with representatives from each organisation and learn about the ways we can help your business.
The Minister for Environment and Disability Services, Hon Stephen Dawson MLC, and other representatives will be attending.
Date & Time: Wednesday 24 October 2018, 9.30am – 12p.00m
Location: The Rise, 28 Eighth Ave, Maylands
Light refreshments will be provided.
