Chapter 1:Noweyung Ltd
A bit of history to start…..
Noweyung Ltd is an Australian Disability Enterprise (ADE) in East Gippsland, established in 1954 by a group of passionate parents of people with disabilities.
At a time when resources and support for the disabled was nothing like it is now in present day 2019, this group worked extremely hard to raise awareness and funds to build a learning centre to provide a kind, supported environment for their children with disabilities to learn and grow to reach their full potential in adult life.
Fast forward to 2019, and the ethos of the organisation remains the same, with it growing into a modern, progressive hub that provides a range of support services to adults to develop skills, self confidence and the all important connection to a community.
Under the Noweyung brand, there is a selection of social and disability enterprises, including:
• the Cell’s Café in Nicholson Street, Bairnsdale
• Banksia Fine Foods
• Ace Total Maintenance
