Inclusion Insight
Inclusion WA's bimonthly newsletter
March/April 2015
Hello Everyone

Welcome to the March/April edition of Inclusion Insight.

There is never a dull moment at Inclusion WA. With an increasing number of talented staff working alongside individuals and community groups it is always a challenge to squeeze the highlights of the month into a few short stories for the newsletter.

Our newsletters tend to focus on the recognition of the achievements of our wonderful staff and the individuals and community groups we work with and for. Reading the stories in this month's newsletter made me reflect on our aspirations for Inclusion WA to be an organisation of high expectations. We have high expectations for ourselves and for what we can achieve and we always strive for continual improvement in everything we do.

I hope that in reading these newsletters you get a sense that there is a real buzz about working for Inclusion WA. The work we do is not always easy but it is because it is hard that it makes it worthwhile- and our thoughtful and hardworking staff are up for the challenge.

"I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who lead difficult lives and led them well." Theodore Roosevelt.
