Wallara was established in 1959 by local Council, parents and passionate volunteers to help kids with a disability in the Dandenong area.
In 2007, Wallara completely reinvented itself and the organisation restructured entirely from an institutional congregate care facility to a community based provider of services.
Wallara’s home of nearly 50 years was demolished and in its place now stands Wallara’s new Headquarters: a highly innovative and integrated development featuring:
Today Wallara delivers services to around 400 people from 30 sites across the SE Corridor of Melbourne and is a leader in the sector.
Sharing the passion and commitment of Wallara’s team of 190 staff to coach and mentor people to reach their full potential, is Andrew Gaze; probably the best known and one of the most successful Australian basketball players.
With Andrew’s goals and values being so aligned with Wallara’s we are delighted that he has become a much-valued supporter and Ambassador of our organisation.
