Our wonderful Support Worker Hayley is the mother of three amazing children who mean the most to her, along with her husband of 22 years. They are her whole world and the reason for doing what she does.
Getting back into the workforce after raising her children and supporting her family at home, was daunting. She knew so much had changed. When looking for a role that suited her, all she knew was that she wanted to work with people.
I’ve always been a people person, I love meeting people, all people! Finding out all about them. What makes them who they are, lessons they have learned in life and what makes them happy or sad.
The disability sector gives Hayley the chance to show her kindness on many different levels. She can give back and help people who need her the most.
I am so grateful for the opportunity of being able to work in the disability sector, I know it’s where I’m meant to be. I absolutely love my job and every day I pinch myself at just how lucky I am.
Through HTA, Hayley stepped foot into the sector and completed all her training fast and efficiently. She started with Interchange almost 3 years ago.
What I love most about Interchange is their passion for the people. Not only our amazing customers – but us too, as Support Workers, as a team!
Hayley says that every day is a different day, working within the disability sector. She has been given the opportunity to try new things that she normally won’t do, helping her grow and get a different perspective.
I always try to stick by the motto of being kind, treating all others the way I wish to be treated. If we all just did a little bit of this, I’m sure the world would be a much better place.
Something Hayley finds very inspiring are people who never give up. The people with the biggest barriers are the ones who strive for better, in everything they do. Hayley is stoked to be able to witness such goal-driven and inspiring people in her role as a Support Worker each and every day.
Whenever she is not at Interchange, she enjoys watching the West Coast Eagles play. She grew up going to the AFL and has two brothers who played all their lives. The love for the game is a childhood memory she holds very dear.
