The Mai-Wel Group, enhancing lives through opportunity and choice 

Mai-Wel creates and delivers vibrant, innovative services and successful businesses which provide opportunities for people with a disability to achieve their dreams and goals for life. Mai-Wel began in 1960 when a group of families met and shared their vision of an education and opportunities for life for their children with a disability. Throughout the years the tireless efforts of community groups, families and individuals have seen these humble beginnings develop into the independent organisation that exists today.

The Mai-Wel Group is a large regional provider of disability services and proudly made in the Hunter.

Corporate Services is located in Maitland. Offices are also located at Telarah, Cessnock and Dungog.

Mai-Wel’s three Australian Disability Enterprises (ADE’s), include PACE Setters, The Enterprise Centre and TimeSavers. Mai-Wel’s other business, Mai-Wel LabourForce Solutions, assists people with a disability or disadvantage to find and keep a job. Mai-Wel offers a wide range of services for people with a disability in the areas of living options, working life, lifestyle and leisure, along with outreach services to the Lower and Upper Hunter, Maitland and Port Stephens areas.

Mai-Wel was one of the first disability organisations in Australia to gain Quality Assurance Accreditation and continues to uphold the rights of people with a disability.Mai-Wel continues to provide a dedicated and outstanding service for people with a disability and their families. Mai-Wel’s commitment to quality training and support provides a capable and well-adjusted workforce for the Hunter region.

Mai-Wel is registered to provide support to participants under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Mai-Wel guarantees to provide you with a service that is supported by a commitment to best practice and an outstanding history of community spirit, built on trust.
