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.

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.
