Our Belief

We believe in a world where people with different abilities enhance and bring diversity to our community.


Our innovative and passionate team has extensive experience working across all levels of healthcare, social engagement organisations and the NDIS to develop affordable, accessible and engaging programs for all levels of ability and ages.

EGA Laundry

EGA Linen Services help provide employment for approximately 40 people with disabilities from our community. Customers from the widest reaches of the Hunter Valley use the services of our commercial laundry and linen hire operations. Offering the highest quality of service and products, EGA Linen Se​rvices is a leader in the supply of hospitality linen.  We supply businesses in Newcastle, Port Stephens, Maitland and Singleton as well as the more local Cessnock, Pokolbin, Branxton and Broke areas.

Our customers appreciate that using the best linen product available also enables them to contribute something positive to our community through this highly successful Australian Disability Enterprise.

Starting up over 30 years ago EGA now operates a laundry facility with state of the art equipment to ensure products are processed to the highest standard.  Ozone technology and rainwater collection provide our laundry with water and energy conservation credentials and lengthen the life of the textiles being processed.

Clean processed linen is stored and carefully handled in separate areas from processing and this ensures that products arrive at our customer’s premises in the best possible condition to impress their guests.  Our access to high quality products such as 100% cotton sheeting, quality table linen and large thick towels enables us to provide services to the highest level of hospitality establishment.


EGA Packing

Wine Packing

The wine packaging operation commenced in the 1980s when the Hunter Valley Wine Society commenced a system of sending mixed cases of wines to members on a quarterly basis.  EGA was contracted to pack these mixed cases and as the membership of the Wine Society grew so did the packaging business.  

In 1993 EGA purchased land in Cessnock Street, and an 883m² warehouse building was constructed to house the wine packaging business.


In 1999 another 300m² building was erected on the site as the Wine Society (by then called Australian Wine Selectors) business continued to grow and the decision was made to base their total receive and distribution operation at Cessnock. In 2003 the wine packaging operations moved to a larger premises in order to accommodate what is today a flourishing business packing over 1500 cartons of wine every workday.

Considerable improvements to the facilities have been made over the years and Wine Selectors and EGA run dual operations from the site in a sound and mutually beneficial relationship. EGA continues to look for more efficient and inventive ways to pack the wine and the environment is both positive and rewarding in both a support and commercial sense.

The site employs over 35 supported employees on both a permanent and part-time basis. The partnership between Wine Selectors and EGA is a great example of a valuable, mutually beneficial relationship between a not for profit community organisation and a highly successful commercial operation.

We are focussed on providing ways for you to be active, to contribute, to learn and most importantly, have fun. Our ability to provide superior services lies in our commitment to understanding and working with our clients to find the best possible solutions and activity outcomes.
