About Us

Fifty years ago, a brave group of parents banded together

Their aim was to find a way to help their children live a fulfilling and secure life. That’s at the forefront of everything we do at EGA today – helping our participants lead their best lives.

We have six Community Program Centres around the Hunter Valley – in Port Stephens, Maitland, Muswellbrook, Lake Macquarie, Singleton and Kurri Kurri. Our participants come together to have fun and to learn skills while being supported and respected. They have social events – from trips to the football to meals out – and programs at the centres like cooking and gardening. Most of all they shine being with their friends!

Our four Business Services facilities give the opportunity for supported employment. Whether working as part of our linen or packing facility teams, or being part of our cleaning and groundskeeping crews, we deliver results for both our customers and employees.

With our own Registered Training Organisation, we also teach people nationally-recognised skills to work in the Human Services Sector.  You learn and work with those directly involved in the disability community to give a greater understanding of the sector.

We’ve been here for fifty years supporting the community. What we offer has changed over that time, but not our passion for helping people!
