What is the WDEA Works Foundation?

The WDEA Works Foundation is a fund established to support activities in the communities in which we operate, so that organisations can improve access and opportunity to people living with a disability.

Since it started in 2004, the WDEA Works Foundation has distributed more than 1 million dollars to various businesses and community organisations around Victoria.

As a community based, not-for-profit organisation, WDEA Works channels funding back into our regional communities through the WDEA Works Foundation and specialist support programs that provide quality employment services for employers and job seekers.

WDEA Works is proud to be part of the communities it serves and therefore, provides assistance to community organisations to assists those living with a disability.
