Meet the Interchange winners of the 2020 Disability Support Awards, which recognise the significant contribution of individuals and teams who support people with disability to achieve their goals.
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.
Interchange Superstar, Katie Van Grootel, has been part of the Interchange family for a long time and is considered an absolute gem by EVERYONE.
Osborne Park Team Leader, Janine Brazil has been nominated for Excellence in Leadership by Interchange customers Fallan and Caris.
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.
Madeline has been nominated for our iThink You Are Awesome Campaign for “going the extra mile to make a fellow team member feel valued and appreciated.”
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.
As the mother of a person we support and a support worker herself Mandy Daniel is giving a shout-out to all the great support workers out there and the wonderful work they do.
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.
