Welcome to Merriwa
Merriwa is one of Australia’s most successful organisations offering integrated employment opportunities for people with disability. Situated in the North East Victorian city of Wangaratta since inception in 1975, Merriwa is recognised as a highly progressive social enterprise.
Being a community-based enterprise and not subject to ownership by any individual or group of individuals, Merriwa is not constrained by the need to return dividends to its “owners”.
Instead, Merriwa employs the notion of social dividends to the community by ensuring that a suitable percentage of its profits are invested into community services and initiatives.
