We have been working with Jordan and his family on his employment goals for many years. Many support workers have tried different things with Jordan, more or less successful, but no one was able to connect with him in the same way Kylie has.
Jordan has been with Interchange for ten years but finding meaningful work has not been easy - until Kylie came along. With the help of his positive and fun Support Worker, Jordan was able to achieve a life-changing goal - starting his own microbusiness.
Interchange's aim was to remove barriers and increase choices for people living with disability, helping people live a good life. Our organisation has now been a part of Joel’s journey for the past 13 years and it has been extraordinary.
Joel’s achievements, confidence, happiness and life has gone from strength to strength, and we could not be happier with his development and zest for life.
We welcome the opportunity to participate in and support the Disability Royal Commission. It is an opportunity to listen, learn and look at how we can continue to improve and ensure the safeguarding of the people we support.
Working with Interchange has come natural to Maree as she wholeheartedly believes in our values: Empowerment, Respect, Individuality and Belonging. Working alongside these values, is what made Maree choose to work in the disability sector in the first place.
Working for Interchange has been a great blessing and Satbeer enjoys it very much. It gives her a versatile workspace with a range of learning opportunities. She loves supporting people to be happy and live a good and fulfilled life.
Carys decided early on that her disability would not prevent her from achieving her goals. She is very active, is a part-time worker and homeowner where she lives independently with support from her parents.
Through her great determination, positive mindset and with a little help of her Support Workers, the independent women is back in the saddle way sooner than anyone anticipated and goes from strong to stronger.
