WCIG supports people facing disadvantage to live the life they want through meaningful employment, training and increased independence. We’re a not-for-profit dedicated to empowering people to meet their goals and reach their potential.
It all started with an idea. In the 1980s, in response to growing unemployment in the area, the Westgate Baptist Community Church started a local response program to help teach computer skills to job seekers. Since then, WCIG has grown into an independent organisation with a long, proud history of delivering innovative, high-quality services that reflect the needs of our community. WCIG continues to support thousands of people across Melbourne and Geelong to make real changes in their lives.
Today, WCIG is a not-for-profit organisation empowering people to meet their goals and reach their potential. We provide assistance in employment, disability, youth and training, providing practical resources to help people find meaningful employment, increase independence and live more fulfilling lives.
We work together with a large network of community organisations, allied health services, employers, community groups, businesses and government to stay in touch with the needs of the people we support and evolve our programs to reflect this.
