Cleanable

WCIG established Cleanable Property Maintenance Services in 2005 as a start-up social enterprise to create jobs and transitional employment pathways for job seekers with a mental illness. Six years on, our initial offering of commercial cleaning services has grown to include domestic cleaning and office and home maintenance.

With an integrated workforce that comprises 25% of staff with a mental illness, Cleanable Property Maintenance Services has successfully established a business model that is adaptable to the needs of our staff.
