I know the feeling of not being included and the impact it has on your life. I can truly relate to the people I support and want to break down barriers for and with them to participate in whatever they like and be included.
It’s vital, especially in these challenging times, to celebrate our silent heroes. In 2020, ten of our incredible Interchangers have been nominated for the WA Disability Support Awards for going beyond ordinary standards and making a difference in the lives of the people they support.
Renee Hesford from our Osborne Park Neighbourhood is a real superstar in everything she does. And her outstanding efforts most certainly don’t go unnoticed by the people surrounding her. That’s why Renee not only got nominated once but twice this month by people who think the Community Engager is simply AWESOME.
I have witnessed people with disabilities out in the community with their support workers, and the look on their faces of being included radiates joy - it's amazing. I wanted to be one of those fabulous people who brings that look to someone’s face.
