From the desk of Amanda
I am always excited to share the achievements we are making at Precious Angels as we continue our commitment to empowering our clients with disabilities.
Our fabulous team of Angels put in countless hours to ensure personalised and effective support for each individual we serve. Witnessing the progress we are making is truly inspiring - from increased independence to improved communication skills, we see transformations that warm our hearts.
One of my favourite things to see every week are friendships created by the participants with each other and the bonds between carers and participants. Every one of our Angel Carers truly cares and wants to help and provide supports for those who chose to use our services.
The changes in admininstration processes and business systems have always been to enhance the experience of our carers and families. We are focused not only on ensuring our policies, procedures and processes are of the highest standard, but that our Angel Support Workers receive the training and have access to the resources they need to continue to provide the highest quality of service.
The pieces are coming together perfectly!
In the new year, we will be looking to expand our services into suburbs we dont currently service, and continue to grow our Angel Family. Maybe add another respite home, maybe create a second community day centre? We still have big dreams.
The Castle is a great home base, there's regular activities during the day and during the weekends the madness descends. Sensory play, cooking, sleeping, hair stylin' and heaps of fun is had.
Apple got help from our participants to cook a Keto pizza (Tara absolutely loved it) and we taught Caleb how to make his own Parmi.
We also had a mini celebration for Finn's birthday
Out with the Angels
Sailing, pub lunches, park days and South Bank - we've been having a great time with our participants out and about. Sometimes it's the simple things that make the difference, like a good laugh or a smile on a nice afternoon.
We love experiencing the world alongside our participants and creating fun times!
Happy 21st Birthday Finn!
It was an absolute delight to celebrate Finn's birthday. He had a great time with his friends and family.
Here's to many more!

Angel of the Fortnight
Our Angel Award goes to Holly!
