The theme for this Disability Action Week is 'Workforce diversity – open up to opportunity'. We think it’s a great opportunity to tell the story of our much-loved support worker, Oriel, who started at our HAND Social and Life Skills Hub 21 years ago as a client. Oriel’s lived experience plays an important part in how she sees and performs her role at HAND and we are very fortunate to have her.
Jim is a proud and capable man who gets satisfaction from the smaller things in life. When he was approved for the NDIS, his sister Karen helped him move into a share home where he’d have the opportunity to contribute to his own day-to-day care.
Sarah had a goal to move out of the family home and worked with her long-time support worker, Sheeta, to build her independent living skills including budgeting, scheduling appointments, time management, planning healthy meals, cooking, travelling, grocery shopping and house-keeping.
