TANYA O'SHEA - Chief Executive
People are central to everything that we do. The capacity to influence, change and transform a person’s life is an incredible privilege that cannot be understated. With this privilege comes the responsibility for ensuring that IMPACT staff remain committed to achieving the best possible outcomes for our clients and others within the community. To achieve this, we need to constantly be evaluating and improving our performance, using our organisational superpowers to ensure that what we want to achieve and what we actually achieve are consistent, transparent and reasonable.
So, what are IMPACT's super powers...
DAVID BATT - IMPACT Chair
I know these reports always start with the usual rhetoric about being busy and doing well as an organisation, but in this case for the 2015-16 year for IMPACT Community Services that would be an understatement if ever there was.
This last year saw IMPACT gain 16 new contracts worth over $3.5 million and subsequently increased employment to 40 extra staff.
We continued to embed our new brand into the community and have been preparing for the upcoming rollout of the NDIS into the region.
Moving into the Discovery Coast region meant expanding our professional service delivery to include community health. We employed 7 new staff who now provide expertise in areas such as children’s health, nutrition, podiatry, women’s health, across all of the Discovery Coast communities, and the team work closely to coordinate service provision through the Primary Health Network (PHN).
