Australia currently has 43,000 children and young people living in Out of Home Care, unable to live with their parents for reasons of safety. The National Disability Insurance Agency estimates 18% of people live with disability, (abs.gov.au) while 20% of all people will experience some form of mental illness within a 12 month period. (SANE.org.au). In addition, we as a nation, are getting older. Over 15% of all people living in Australia are aged 65 years and over, that’s 3.4 million people. Of those still living in their own homes, 70% enjoy good health – they are ageing ‘well’ – and the other 30% require some form of home support. (AIHW.gov.au) as a national provider of social services, all changes in Australia’s demographic profile requires us to review our services and models of support. However, our approach of putting people first never changes.
Who we are is defined not just by how we look and talk but more importantly by what we do and our values.
