Enterprises

Diversitat operates a number of enterprises, with all funds raised going towards services and programs which assist our clients. These enterprises include the diverse  community radio and television station, 94.7 The Pulse, our very own café and bulk goods store, Wholefoods Pantry and Kitchen, an opportunity shop in Belmont, the Oppe Shoppe, and our clothing redesign enterprise, Stitch.

About the Enterprise

94.7 The Pulse offers more than 70 different radio programs in 18 different languages and two 30 minute television programs a week, making for a hectic demanding schedule that is proudly met every week by all contributors. The Pulse is Geelong’s community radio and television station and proudly serves the regions of Geelong, the Surf Coast and the Bellarine Peninsula. Visit 94.7 The Pulse website to find out more.

The Oppe Shoppe at Shop 5, 120 High Street in Belmont, was acquired by Diversitat in 2016 and allows us to provide clothing to our clients. The store also creates an opportunity for clients to gain valuable retail work experience.

Wholefood Pantry and Kitchen is a community-based, ‘healthy alternative’ café, shop, catering service and bulk supplier of certified-organic fruit, vegetables and groceries. Wholefoods offers a broad product range to suit people with special dietary needs, as well as environmentally-friendly cleaning and domestic products. We are proud to promote locally hand made products from a number of our community programs and local artisans, with a dedicated arts space and an in-house short courses program.

Stitch has developed a dignified, creative work initiative for women who may feel vulnerable and isolated. The Stitch program utilises reclaimed fabrics to redesign and produce   clothing and accessories to sell in the local community.

Pulse Radio Station

Established in 1984 when a community broadcaster was sought for Geelong, 94.7 The Pulse has an extensive variety of programs, ranging from discussion-based current affairs, sports and special interest programs, through to dedicated music genre programs.

Wholefoods Pantry and Kitchen

It’s a very exciting time for Wholefoods Pantry and Kitchen,  as we transition to our new city location in Mercer Street. With a brand new logo and fresh approach, we can’t wait to reveal our revitalised cafe. Stay tuned for updates.
