Since 1975 Merriwa has successfully managed both our commercial operations and the provision of services to people with a disability and the vulnerable in our community.
Merriwa operates several professional, accredited businesses. Our largest divisions are our timber and packaging operations.
We are proud to trade with over 140 regular customers and generate over $20 million in revenue each year. Our commercial operations help to fund the important work of our Community Services Division who provide more than 100 individual care recipients with access to a wide range of vital services.
Merriwa receives a small amount of funding from the Department of Social Services which provides on the job support and training to over 80 supported employees who have a recognised disability. Our supported employees work in a team environment alongside over 100 colleagues. Our workforce totals over 200 employees. All commercially based employees are employed under a modern award and enjoy good employment conditions.
