Meet our awesome Support Worker Michael from our Rockingham Neighbourhood.
After working in retail for nearly 20 years Michael decided that it was time for a change. He was seeking a more rewarding career path, something he would enjoy and a role that would be rewarding and fulfilling. He found what he was looking for when commencing as a Support Worker at Interchange 3 years ago.
Every day is different and presents a new set of challenges. Supporting people to achieve and smash their goals is always extremely rewarding.
The chance to support someone to live a meaningful life is what motivates Michael every day. He supports people with their contributions to their communities and finds his team in Rockingham very supportive.
Seeing people not give up and overcome their difficulties inspires me.
Empowerment is the value that speaks the loudest to him as he is able to validate a person’s potential and help them feel emotionally supported through empowering them.
Michael enjoys a good sci-fi novel or movie and if he isn’t out on an adventure, he seeks great comfort in a nice little day nap.
Family and friends are his true treasure, and he enjoys spending his free time with the people he loves as they have helped him become the person he is today. His life motto is: It is never too late to start doing the things you love.
Thank you, Michael. We think you are awesome!
