Stories of generosity

Celebrating Christmas in style...

In December 2021, our  participants were able to celebrate Christmas in style with assistance from the Achieve Fund.  We were able to purchase Christmas vouchers, stockings and additional items for our houses to assist in their preparation of Christmas.

As a result, our residents were able to decorate their houses, enjoy gifts and meals together with their fellow residents and staff.

Friendship and community are a big part of life. Creating opportunities for participants to build community and celebrate big moments in life, is important to overall wellbeing and quality of life.

Christmas was so fun and nice to celebrate with friends.

Remembering a friend...

Our supported accommodation helps people find a home, live well in their home, and form friendships.

Participants are supported to build a community in which they belong and feel safe and respected.

As a result, participants and staff become like family and so losing a housemate is like losing family. In 2022, the Achieve Fund helped residents purchase items to build a mosaic memorial plaque for a deceased resident, as well as purchase a plant for the home’s garden.

The plaque and tree is so we can have a little space in the garden to remember our friend.
