Message from the CEO
Our Strategic Planning process is in full swing…..
The first of our sessions was Sunday 23 March 2014 and attended by the Committee members and myself… it was a very productive day and will result in a robust professional plan for the future of Headway Gippsland.
The next session will be facilitated by me and is going to be held on 8 April 2014 and attended by the Staff.
Following that is the carers of Headway Client’s session confirmed for 16th and 17th of April at a great venue in Trafalgar – The Summit
At the conclusion of all sessions we will be in a position to develop the total plan which will encompass our service delivery needs, infrastructure and administrative requirements in the short term and identify what we need to do to transition into the NDIS environment…… in short we need to transition from a government funded organisation to a fee for service organisation able to provide the services our clients want and need.
The NDIS is one of the most significant Federal government reforms in recent history and provides Headway with a mighty challenge…but a very exciting one.
On a completely different topic…..
I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Nuray Ardolli who recently won a scholarship to embark on a significant piece of study….I don’t recall coming across a person more committed to study and specifically for our group of clients.
Nuray is currently studying the Graduate certificate in Family Therapy from the Bouverie Centre, specifically to assist families looking after a person with an ABI. Family Therapy involves identifying areas of concern and developing strategies to address these concerns. If any family would like to assist with a project assignment could you please ring the office on 5127 7166
