On Thursday 29th March a general staff meeting was held at the Focus ACT office in Deakin. It included a morning and afternoon session so that all support workers would have the opportunity to attend.
After thanking everyone for their efforts in supporting clients and being part of the Focus family, CEO Torrien Lau informed staff of a new role to be created within Focus. The role will establish a better link between clients, front-line staff and Coordinators. With its finer details yet to be worked out, Torrien urged staff to send in their expressions of interest to work in such a role when it is advertised.
Staff were encouraged to put their ideas forward and a discussion followed including feedback on how their current roles could be supported by this position and potential tasks within the role.
