Last Saturday night over 800 people attended a gala night to celebrate the amazing work throughout the state to support people with disability.
Rise was represented in two categories; the team at Welbourne were nominated by one of the parents of a young man living at Welbourne and our employee Deb Miley nominated her support worker, Amy, from Edge Employment in recognition of the support she has been given to re-gain her skills following an accident.
Ciaran’s Dad, Alan, nominated the team at Welbourne for their “extraordinary quality care and consideration” that Ciaran and his housemates receive. Alan also recognised the staff work as a “cohesive team, communicating with each other, bringing stability to the home and giving the residents a sense of security and well-being”.
Angie Jeffery and her team of Andrew (Atina), Rebecca, Alfred, Lovena, Joyline, Jared and Haron, didn’t walk away with a prize on the night but we are so proud of them, and of all our workers in disability, you are all superstars!
