Providing Employment for People with a Disability Since 1962

Currently employing more than 50 people, we are the largest employer of people with a disability in the greater Launceston area with our employees all enjoying the benefits of real employment through the provision of a steady work environment including wages, superannuation and leave entitlements. With an active social club and dedicated employees and staff, we offer a place of employment that is productive, fun and enjoyable while providing businesses the opportunity to save money by utilising our services. Contact us today to see how we might be able to help each other keep our businesses prosperous!

Dedicated to Creating a Supportive, Sustainable Workplace 

Self Help Workplace is in many ways just like every other business in Launceston. We produce and sell a range of goods and services which businesses and individuals want to buy. However, the unique part of our organisation comes down to the people who work in it. As a social enterprise, Self Help Workplace is motivated in everything we do, to provide people with disability with meaningful and productive work so they can enjoy independent and fulfilling lives.

In order to support this role, our staff and directors create a supportive workplace which empowers people with disabilities to take pride in their work, celebrate their achievements and produce quality products and services. They undertake this role through strategic planning to sustain the future of our organisation and facilitating day-to-day business operations, all with the goal of increasing the amount of support we can provide to people with a disability.
