Our Story

In 1958, the Reverend Ralph Sutton, a young and energetic leader from the Western Australian Wesley Mission, now part of UnitingCare was approached by Bernice Moorhouse, a young woman with a hearing impairment who wanted to find meaningful employment. Her request struck a chord, and he asked members of his parish to donate items of clothing, which were sorted, laundered and mended by Bernice in a small room at the rear of Wesley Mission, and then sold at a small price. This was the beginning of Good Sammy Enterprises.

From these humble beginnings, Good Sammy Enterprises now offers a wider choice of employment and training opportunities to people with disabilities in Western Australia and has helped over 5000 people to find independence and become ready for work.

Our mission is to create meaningful employment opportunities
and pathways for people with a disability.
