The Wise Group

The first thing you notice about the Wise Group is that we’re a little bit different!

We chase one thing relentlessly - our dream to create fresh possibilities and services for the wellbeing of people, organisations and communities. We’re a family of charitable organisations and our work includes health and wellbeing services, housing support, employment and navigation services, education and training, workforce development and research, software development, and finally business support services.

We’re also a Peak Performing Organisation; a practice underpinned by research that helps us continuously be the best we can as we pursue our shared dream. Together, we ‘think and act as one’ to create the greatest outcomes for the people, organisations and communities we serve.
