WDEA Works is a not-for-profit organisation that operates across regional Victoria and South East South Australia, working with people of all ages to develop employment and life skills; to unlock their potential and build their ability.

Our organisational values and culture are about care, empathy, support and action. WDEA Works ensures people can find and maintain employment and social inclusion via a range of settings and opportunities, be it in the workplace, via training courses, or supported employment.
