As we kick off 2023, the Inala Community House team is re-energised and excited to make a big impact this year. In amongst all the planning and preparation for 2023, we asked members of the Inala Community House leadership team what they were hoping to achieve in their services this year… their ‘New year’s resolutions’ you might say! Here’s what they said.
My Place Family Day Care
The wonderful educators at My Place Family Day Care have been working hard to care for over 800 children across South-East Queensland. This year, our coordinators team are focused on supporting the educators to deliver the highest quality care and provide them with ongoing education opportunities. In addition, we want to grow our pool of educators so that we can provide care for even more children. Watch this space!
Out of Home Care
Unfortunately, there is an ever-growing need for carers in the child protection space. This year, ICH is focused on growing the carer program to help meet that need. The Out of Home Care team are also focused on continuing to collaborate with the Family Intervention Services to ensure a holistic service approach.
Wow, it’s going to be a big year for the Community Engagement team. We have a packed event calendar and are hoping to see people of all different ages and demographics get involved. There will also be some new events in the calendar, so stay tuned for those announcements.
Family Intervention Service
In 2023, the Family Intervention Service are focusing on proactive and therapeutic healing approaches. The goal is to implement programs and resources that are all about healing, facilitating change and upskilling parents to manage.
NDIS is a rapidly growing area, and we want to ensure we continue to offer the best support coordination and management for our service users. This year, we will also be working towards offering additional services, including outings and activities for those accessing our NDIS support.
As we said, it’s going to be a BIG year for Inala Community House. Overall, we want to ensure every program and service we offer is meeting the needs of the community. If the people in Inala feel like something is missing, we want to be able to listen and offer a solution. Stay tuned as we get moving on our plans and hopefully be sharing some big wins throughout the year!
