Witmore has been providing supported employment and programs to people with a disability since 1958
Our story began more than 60 years ago, at a time when people with a disability had few opportunities. Witmore was created from the voices of two families in the Singleton region in 1958; the Witt and the Moore families. These two courageous families dared to dream big for their children; they rallied together and opened the first school in our region for children with a disability. Then as these children grew older, they opened the first supported workshop.
Today, Witmore continues to walk in their footsteps and we now offer a diverse range of services including:
Coordination of supports
Witmore is a locally owned organisation with an established track record of delivering excellence in disability support by providing personalised and dynamic services to our valued clients and participants.
Our diverse range of activities and programmes includes; supported employment, community access, 1:1 support, respite, in-home support, weekend social events and action-filled supported holidays.
We aim to ensure our participants and supported employees build personal friendship circles and community connections, confidence, and independence. We deliver all these services with the participant at the wheel, empowering them to feel in control and make their own choices.
We support our participants and supported employees to take advantage of the many opportunities we offer to reach their personal goals by learning relevant and practical life and work-related skills to live their best lives.
