I cant believe another newsletter has come and gone! My team all work so well, and I am very proud of their progress. We continue to seek new families to join the Angel fold, while continuing our training and mentoring of staff to work towards the best outcomes for our families and support workers.
We are introducing a new logo - its a beautifully clever triangle/angel logo showing the
interconnection of our participants, parents and staff. It is the wallpaper on our facebook page, and you will see it start to pop up around the place.
Our business growth has reached the point where we are seeking help for IT Solutions. We have a number of staff in the office, assisting on different days of the week, to harness their transferable skills. Now we just need to ensure our hardware and software are up to the job!
Thank you to the families trialling Brevity. I see Rob has received some valuable feedback around your experience. Parents/Gauradians can join the trial at any time, just send us an email and Rob will take you through the very easy onboarding process.
We have the Source Kids Expo this weekend. Myself, Apple and Zena will be there on Saturday, and Kayla, Amina and Casey will be there on Sunday. The expo is open from 9am to 4pm Saturday and Sunday. Oh, and we have our Jelly Bean guessing competition again! I might just happen to know how many are in there too..... shhhh
We celebrated Cezanne's 23rd birthday this week! As you can see he was very pleased with the whole spectacle, and particularly the chocolate cake he got to share! We also had Luke, Asha and Caleb hanging out and having a play. It's so lovely to see these young adults enjoying the activities and community we've fostered at The Castle.
Out with the Brisbane Angels
From sailing to zoo-ing, we have just as much fun as our participants getting out and about! Creating memories and experiences for our participants is so important. We love being a part of discoveries and moments that they can enjoy!
