A Message from the Chief Executive - Winter 2018
Written on the 18 July 2018
Welcome to our 2018 Winter Newsletter!
I find these newsletters to be a great opportunity to look back on our clients, employees and the organisations achievements over the previous 3-month period.
I believe this is important, taking 10 minutes to look at the outcomes of our hard work and to celebrate together the achievements of our clients and staff. It is through this reflection and celebration that we can remain energised and enthusiastic for the future knowing that our efforts will bear fruit and that we will have an opportunity to look back briefly and say to each other 'well done'.
In keeping with the theme of recognising and celebrating achievement, I am excited to take this opportunity to announce that we are looking to launch a formal 'rewards and recognition program' in the second half of this year. This program will look to reward the outstanding achievements of both our clients and staff that are occuring across the organisation every day.
I personally am very excited about this initiative and there will be more details to come later in the year.
Talking about successes and rewarding outstanding achievements reminds me of a significant event which took place during the period on the Gold Coast the Commonwealth Games.
This year's Commonwealth Games were the largest major sporting event to integrate both para and non para-sports continuing the push for the full inclusion of people with disability in our community.
This was a wonderful event which highlighted some of the great achievements of our athletes with disability, demonstrating to the world that their disability was not a barrier to them achieving their goals and contributing to our communities.
As you will see throughout this newsletter, like the athletes at the Commonwealth Games, our clients, employees and the organisation have also achieved some fantastic outcomes during the period.
Clients in the Adelaide Hills have been supported to attend a mainstream education program on how to write a resume and prepare for the workforce. Shaun in the Murraylands has been working hard to overcome a debilitating illness securing meaningful employment and taking up his beloved game of Golf once again. And we as an organisation have been able to appoint committed, professional and skilled Intake Officers in each of our service regions to support new and existing clients as best we can to make the most of the NDIS and our services.
These are just a few examples of how our clients, employees and the organisation are achieving great outcomes everyday.
I want to thank our clients and families for the trust they place in us to deliver their services and thank our employees for the commitment they show everyday in supporting our clients to achieve their goals and live their best life possible.
Thank you all for your support of Community Living Australia and I look forward to seeing what we can achieve together in the rest of 2018 and beyond.
