As the ILC continues to work through its strategic plan for 2014 – 2017, developments are taking place to ensure that our services align with changing service models in the disability, aged and community care sectors and that we are able to best meet consumers’ needs.
The past six months has seen an increase in our fee for service activity, including the assessment, prescription, therapy, training and support services we are providing to many people participating in the NDIA and My Way trial sites. Through these services our occupational therapists and speech pathologists are able to help people with their assistive equipment and technology needs to help them to achieve their goals.
At the same time we have established our new base in Cockburn, which offers people the opportunity to see, trial and experience equipment, smart home technology and home modifications in an apartment style living environment.
The combination of these areas of expansion brought forward the need to review and redesign the structure of our organisation to support further growth and development.
The main change is the establishment of a new management role – Business Development and Program Manager – which is being carried out by Kelly Savage.
Moving forward, the ILC’s management team comprises:
- Gerri Clay, Chief Executive Officer
- Sally Hunter, Assistive Technology Manager
- Kelly Savage, Business Development and Program Manager
- Annette Frazer, Business Services Manager
- Francine Snadden, Service Manager
Other new positions within the organisation include two Service Coordinator roles set up to support people participating in the NDIS and My Way trial sites as well as those wanting to use our private services such as home visits. Alison Senior and Amy Litton are undertaking these roles.
Together the team looks forward to leading the ILC into this period of change and to providing relevant services that make a difference to people’s lives.
