Linda joined Bayley House at the beginning of 2022 and has been working from our Hampton East hub.
Katie and Georgina are both members of the group she works with and their goals have been focused around workplace skill development through our wider Workplace Engagement program. Katie and Georgina volunteer at St Davids Op Shop where they have been learning how to label jars of jam that are donated and also how to present and display new stock for sale.
Over a period of time, the main goal for the ladies was to be able to attend their volunteer placement as independently as possible. Katie and Georgina worked with Linda to establish a pace they were comfortable with and gradually, over a few months, Linda was able to ease back on the support required as the ladies confidence grew. Katie and Georgina now attend their volunteer sessions with very minimal support from Linda which is a fantastic step towards their goal achievement.
