Here at Mercy Community, we believe employment is more than just a job.
When an individual feels welcome, supported and empowered in their workplace, it can have significant positive effects on their self-esteem, confidence and sense of purpose.
And we believe this is something that people of all abilities should be given the opportunity to experience.
Mercy Community (MC) provides meaningful employment for people with intellectual disabilities who may not have access to mainstream job opportunities. We do this through the Cookery Nook, an Australian Disability Enterprise (ADE) that provides a professional quality catering service to metropolitan Brisbane and its surrounds.
The Cookery Nook not only provides practical work skills, but also contributes to the development of personal and social skills, including:
Our passionate team provides each employee with individualised training, professional development and growth opportunities, to cater for their unique needs and help them achieve their personal and career goals.
We pride ourselves on our supportive, 'family-like' culture, where our aim is to understand and encourage each individual to reach their full potential.
