At Everyday Independence, our commitment to supporting people with disabilities to reach their unique potential and enjoy an everyday life has defined who we are for more than 20 years.
We are incredibly proud of the way our team worked purposefully and quickly to introduce initiatives across the organisation to enable us to deliver on this vision during the COVID-19 pandemic.
During April, we supported more than 5100 people to continue working towards outcomes that are important to them and adjust to new routines and new ways of spending their time.
We expanded our services to include online therapy, enabling our therapists to meet the individual needs and circumstances of people isolating at home.
Initiatives to support team members to continue building their capability and manage their mental health and wellbeing were rolled out across the organisation. Ensuring our team members stayed connected and felt supported to manage changes within the workplace was a key priority for our leadership team.
The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly brought many challenges to our communities, but it has also brought opportunities for us to define our strength and resilience as an organisation committed to supporting people with disabilities to live to their potential.
