70 Years, what a Joy!

News & Events

As many of you will already be aware, Bayley House will celebrate a major milestone this year; 70 years supporting people with intellectual disability. Planning is well underway for celebrations that will take place – social distancing and COVID-19 allowing of course!

Last year a competition was held to design a logo for the anniversary year. While we received many amazing designs from Bayley House clients, it was Katherine’s that was chosen. Congratulations, Katherine!

Throughout the year, we will be sharing stories of clients who have been with us throughout the 70 years.

Joy has been coming to Bayley House for over 40 years and is also a long-term resident in our accommodation service. A lifelong Sydney Swans supporter, Joy will quite often be seen in her red and white supporter gear. She loves being creative and can often be found painting or drawing.

Known to be a social butterfly, Joy loves any reason to get up and dance. Recently Joy has taken up new hobbies such as yoga, meditation and karaoke. One of her favourite new hobbies has been learning how to use an iPad, where she is joining in with her house mates and making short films with the support of staff. Joy has also recently made her first photo book.

Thank you Joy, for being such a wonderful part of the Bayley House family for many years – you, and all our clients, are the heart and soul of this special organisation.
