Inclusion WA's Newsletter
May 2017
Hello Everyone

Welcome to the autumn newsletter. As we do each year we recently conducted a client satisfaction survey. This year the entire management team conducted interviews face-to-face so we could hear directly from people we support and their families. It was an incredibly useful and powerful process for us all. We were pleased that much of the feedback reinforced that we seem to be on the right track in ensuring people with disabilities are in charge of their life and supports. For example, one client said “My mentor helps me with the things I want to achieve in life. She brings confidence. I get choices in life. You guys gave me the confidence that I can do stuff”.

While it was pleasing to get positive comments it was also helpful to get feedback on ways we can get better. We know we are on a never ending journey of continual improvement and it is the constructive advice which helps us to keep developing. I would like to personally thank everyone who participated in the process. We look forward to being even more useful in people’s lives over the coming year.

While working on continual improvement for our existing clients, we are also mindful that more people would like to access our services. To that end, I am very excited about the update included in this newsletter about our recent expansion. I look forward to sharing with you more on these changes over coming months.

Introducing - A new hub in the eastern suburbs

As the reputation of the organisation has grown over the last few years so too has the demand for our services. In order to prepare the organisation for future growth, we are establishing a new hub for our services in the Eastern suburbs. Whilst our longer term plan is for a new office, our immediate priority is to set up a new team and start work with people and families who are new to our organisation. Watch this space for more news as we continue to work on the nuts and bolts of our new hub in the east.

Services available in the east include:

  • Individualised Services – flexible support for people with a disability
  • Personal Recovery Services – a recovery focussed service for people with mental health issues
  • Coordination Services – for people who need assistance to coordinate their services. This type of support is also known as Support Coordination by the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

If you have any questions about the new Eastern Hub, please contact Matt Shaw, Individualised Services Manager East on 08 9201 8900.

Mirrabooka Community Open Day

In 2016 Inclusion WA received a grant from the Scanlon Foundation to support and develop the Mirrabooka and surrounding community through the Mirrabooka One Community Project. Working alongside a number of clubs and groups in the area, Inclusion WA ran a series of social inclusion training seminars and provided free one-on-one club development and support to local clubs and groups.

Partnering with the Social Inclusion Group Mirrabooka, Inclusion WA proposed the idea of holding a Community Open Day to celebrate the project. The Community Open Day was held on Sunday March 12th at the Herb Graham Recreation Centre in Mirrabooka and was a marvellous success. Featuring over 25 local clubs, groups and organisations from the Mirrabooka community, the open day was an opportunity for local community members to meet, connect, and try out a few different sporting and recreational activities. Community members made many new social connections in a relaxed and welcoming environment. With over 430 people attending, the event was a great representation of the diverse and wonderful community that is Mirrabooka.
