“It is good to have an understanding of disability and mental illness and it is really important to also appreciate carers. Our staff have really diverse backgrounds, one was a police person, teacher and even sales, so we work with them to develop their skills”
As an organisation how do you support and educate your workforce?
“We tend to work with what we have and develop them, we do a lot of training and a lot of coaching, mentoring and lots of feedback, all the time.”
