Share your life – Become a Host

No two days are ever the same. As a support worker, I enjoyed being the bridge between the people we support and the community while also being a role model for people on how to interact with, and treat people living with a disability.”
These are the words of Interchanger Renee. Renee joined our organisation 5 years ago as a student and moved from a casual support worker to a variety of project roles, and is now the Community Engager for our Osborne Park and Midland Neighbourhoods.
