What drives me is social justice – our customers have the same rights as you and me. I want to make people happy and smile. I think I was put on this earth to do that.”

Happy Anniversary, Gareth! The Support Worker from our Myaree Neighbourhood has been part of our Interchange family for the past 10 years in various roles – supporting people is something that is close to his heart.

When I first came to Interchange I felt like I found a cause, something to believe in and something to be a part of. I love helping the people we support being a part of their community and achieving the goals they want to achieve.

Gareth selflessly goes out of his way to encourage and support not only customers and staff, but to role model to the community that people living with a disability are just like everybody else.

We are all born the same way, we are all humans, just because some of us are living with a disability does not mean they are any less deserving or capable of living the life they choose.

The Support Worker is well-liked by customers and staff alike for his bright, cheerful and giving personality.

I have had the pleasure of working with Gareth Haines over the past 10 years at Interchange, and to this day Gareth still supports each and every Customer with an incredible amount of Energy, Respect and Enthusiasm. – Brett Bradley, Community Engager

When not being an awesome Support Worker, Gareth enjoys socialising with a large network of friends, going to the gym, and spending time with his son Thomas, whom Garreth strives to be a role model for. 

Gareth we would like to thank you for everything you have done in the past 10 years within our organisation and beyond to ensure that people feel valued, accepted and like they belong. Thank you for your dedication and selflessness in supporting Interchange customers, staff, and the community.  Well done and Congratulations Gareth!
