WISE Employment is committed to and passionate about helping the most disadvantaged through specialist employment and training programs and partnerships.
We are a not-for-profit organisation. Since 2001, we have invested more than $3.5 million in innovative community programs, community projects and community research to help the most disadvantaged. Our partners are proud of the support they have given and the remarkable achievements of the disadvantaged people that have engaged in our programs, funded through WISE community investments. See below a snapshot of some of the community success stories created through like-minded organisations partnering with us.
The key to positive change in our community is through partnerships with organisations that share our passion and belief that with the right support, people can become more self-reliant, improve their personal, social and economic circumstances and ultimately become self-sufficient. This result enriches the whole community. The organisations that partner with us come from all levels of government, universities, public and private organisations, the community and through private philanthropy.

These people are under-serviced through existing public and private sector programs. Sadly, they “fall through the cracks” and remain disconnected from the labour market, their community and risk living unfulfilled lives. We are proud of the work we have done to help refugees resettle in Australia and thrive, as well as helping Indigenous youth gain meaningful work.The people we help include:
