Embark on a journey with The Mai-Wel Group...

The support, the positive feedback and the ongoing need to raise funds for projects that increase opportunities for people with a disability has inspired us to make the Gala Ball a quality and memorable annual event for Maitland.

The funds raised from this year’s Gala Ball will be allocated towards acquiring a Mai-Wel Domestic Skills House which provides people with a disability, who want to become more independent, a realistic experience of living away from home.

In June 2012, Mai-Wel rented a four bedroom property to provide a base for this project. Participants have increased and developed their skills in meal planning, cooking, shopping and budgeting, cleaning, travelling on public transport and the social skills of living with housemates. Some of the project’s participants are now preparing to move into accommodation to live independently which is a fantastic outcome.

In the future, the house will provide others with similar opportunities to increase their independence and build on their skill development.

Our goal is to purchase a property with a purpose built layout which will transition other people with a disability out of the family home to independent living.

Limited tickets are available.
