In my first Chair’s report I am pleased to report The Supported Life Style Hauraki Trust has continued to build on prior years, providing quality services to Life Stylers, assisting them to achieve their individual goals. Our staff, supported by Samantha Lee and the Leadership team have continued to develop their capabilities to effectively deliver support to Life Stylers with residential and vocational services.
During the year we reaffirmed strategic priorities including: quality improvement in Service delivery; considering future options for the Trust in a potentially transformed sector (eg Enabling Good Lives) and building strong connections within the
community and sector. We asked Life Stylers and their families for feedback and improvement suggestions – which influence future operations. Communication continues to be a focus – anyone who has concerns, compliments or suggestions is encouraged to contact our staff/Chief Executive. This 2-way personal approach aids our effort to support wellbeing and improvement. The previous 12 months has also seen an exciting new facility: Equine therapy and outdoor interaction
centre; established through significant Life Styler, staff and community efforts and donations. Thank you.
We, along with other disability providers, continued to work in a sector with funding squeezes and operational challenges, despite well intentioned government officials and politicians. Our priority remains the best and safe outcomes for our Life Stylers and staff. This has required a responsive, flexible approach, whilst effectively communicating potential impacts of sector-wide decisions to stakeholders.
My thanks: to my fellow Trustees, for their ongoing contribution to delivering on our purpose; to Samantha, the leadership team and dedicated staff – we appreciate your 24/7 focus and hard work throughout the year. Special thanks to Life Stylers and their families for choosing us to work with you, pursuing your unique goals.
