ANNUAL REPORT 2014-15
Progressive people have a clear view
of how the future should look
Progressive people are visionary.
They’re curious, confident and idealistic
and they like trying new things.
“I’m proud that YFS won the Intensive Family Support tender. It validates the work we do at YFS – we’re strong, professional and client centred and our programs really work."
“Our challenge, like most not-for-profits, is to increase our capacity so we can meet demand for our services.
This means we need sustainable funding, the right connections, and the right services run by the right staff with the right training.”
“If we want to see anyone in general becoming more respectful, we can’t just teach it, we need to be able to lead as examples. As a Youth Ambassador for R4Respect the first thing we want to do is establish what respect is.”
“Our job with NDIS Get Ready is to take complex information and simplify it. That’s what we do well – we make difficult content more accessible so people can understand how changes to disability funding will affect them.”
