One of my recommendations for other businesses getting involved in Teenworks is to be positive about it. To see people like Mitchell grow and grow, for me that is the reward. It makes you realise how good life is. His look on life is incredible and it’s inspiring to me. It’s made me be more thankful for the life that I live. He has influenced me a lot.”
“Amicus helped me to establish and understand my role with Dylan; they created structure and gave the placement real purpose. Over time Dylan’s confidence has grown. He works by himself now; knows what to do and doesn’t need instructions. He brings a great positive attitude into the store and it’s just been a really good experience.”
“The Bendigo Weekly has been working with Amicus for some time now. This has proven to be a productive association for all involved and great support for our Distribution Team. Since employing Jye, Paul, Sarah and Peter the deliveries in their allocated areas have been consistent and the feedback from residents has been nothing but positive.”
Amicus creates opportunities and impact – one person at a time and one place at a time, through our innovative and quality service and supports, community partnerships and contemporary technology – for people of all abilities, ages and stages, in the communities in which we work.
Amicus is recognised internationally as a leader in the provision of disability and children’s services and we deliver 24-7 support to assist individuals to participate in valued roles within the community.
Amicus acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Custodians of the land and acknowledges and pays respect to their Elders past, present and emerging.
