We are dedicated to providing transitional work opportunities for people that have faced disadvantage.
AT THE HEART OF OUR BUSINESS LIES NEW BEGINNINGS.
Unlike most commercial laundries, a not-for-profit organisation supporting people who have a lived experience of disadvantage who struggle to secure employment.
We’re a self-sustaining social enterprise that helps change lives. We work for purpose not profit; utilising our commercial laundry to reinvest into our social mission.
When you use Vanguard Laundry, not only do you get a high quality linen service, but you will also help provide jobs and training for local people who need a hand up.
A LAUNDRY WITH A SOCIAL PURPOSE.
We're a self-sustaining social enterprise that helps change lives.
Our new custom-built commercial laundry uses state-of-the art technology aimed at delivering significant economic and environmental savings for customers.
Whether your business is in healthcare, aged care, hospitality, accommodation, facilities management, or agri-business, we promise to apply the highest quality, service and environmental standards.
And, because we are a social enterprise, when you use Vanguard Laundry, you’ll be helping to create more jobs and career development for people in the Toowoomba region who have experienced disadvantage and struggle to get back into the workforce.
Our mission is to develop a sustainable, profit-making business that empowers equal opportunities for disadvantaged individuals. We empower personal independence through earning a fair income, reducing reliance on welfare, increasing social connection and supporting health service programmes.
LAUNDRY WITH HEART.
MORE THAN JUST A COMMERCIAL LAUNDRY.
