From the desk of Amanda

2023 has been and almost gone! Can you believe how fast this last few months have flown by.

I have been trying to get the new castle pricing out to our Castle families - I will have this completed next week. There are still a lot of questions, and hopefully we can answer these for you promptly!

Apple is currently away and wont return until January. Our Castle Crew have been very busy this week, and next week for the first week of the school holidays we are at capacity most days which is very exciting. Don't forget, our last Saturday @ The Castle will be Saturday 16 December.

Its not too early to let us know what supports you will need in January.

Rob has started his 6 monthly in-home safety inspections. Remember, these are just to ensure our staff working environments are safe and free from hazards, and only cover areas in your home where our staff work with your Angels.

Our last staff social in Brisbane for 2023 will be Wednesday 20 December. Bring a fun gift ($20 max) to share for "Bad Santa" fun.

Although the office and the Castle will be closing down, I will have the after hours phone during this period.

Until next time.


Special Group Therapy

In the coming year we are looking at working with a Speechy, Sheree, on Mondays to help deliver NDIS goals more effectively. At the moment we are trying to gauge interest and attendance. If you think that your child/teenager/young adult would from this please contact the After Hours phone.

@The Castle

This year we have focused on how we can become our participant's 2nd voice by using PODD books, knowing our friends well, observing their responses and using simple Auslan.

A special Happy Birthday to Deanna:

We were happy to celebrate Deanna turning 21 on Saturday.

We all sang, laughed and shared cake with her family and Castle friends :)

Out with the Angels

We love getting out participants out and about in the world. Sharing experiences and making memories, it's always a joy. Bowling, dancing at SWARA and enjoying respite, this is just a small glimpse into the work we do with out participants.

Don't forget to check facebook for photos too.

Photo of the Week

King of the Seagulls, Caleb had a blast wading through the water exploring for crabs. His favourite bit was sharing his fish and chips with the seagulls.

Angel of the Fortnight

Mekhayla earned this month's Angel Award for her kindness.

A skilled communicator, she effortlessly connects with others. Her down-to-earth approach makes her a standout in fostering understanding and compassion.
