When the curtain went up on Quirky’s debut at QPAC last week, the 25 artists were joined on stage by some very special guests. Patchwork dinosaurs Thumpy and Lumpy were made especially for the show – lovingly designed and hand-crafted by Lyndal, one of the cast of the Real and Diverse (RAD) Theatre ensemble, supported by Centacare.
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.
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.
