More adventure travel updates from our Tasmania Getaways group as they embarked the Spirit of Tasmania in great spirits. They were all very excited to be travelling interstate and loved the 10 hour overnight stay.
Yesterday they had a very early start. After disembarking, the group stopped... off for breakfast at a little town called Bothwell. From there they made the journey to Hobart and arrived at ‘The Mansion’ at lunch time.
They settled in for the day, enjoying a cooked meal in home and rested up for the evening. More updates to come!

This week we are focusing on our supported employment service at The Bridge Works. Ran from our Dandenong-based factory, The Bridge Works offers labelling, packaging, and assembly solutions provided by employees with all abilities.
The Bridge Works commenced operations in 1992 and have ...over 50 supported employees, some of which have been with us since we opened! Our focus is on assisting people with disabilities to maintain their employment, achieve goals and realise their full potential.
Not only do we match our supported employees' skills to the requirements of the jobs we have available, but we also offer Occupational Health and Safety Awareness training and ongoing specialised training to gain new workplace skills.
But it’s not all work, the team have lots of fun too and develop social skills to form close friendships.

Participants at Hub 31 from both Dandenong day service and Youth Jobs Now! put on a fabulous morning tea for The Bridge's Community Voice Advisory Group (CVAG).
CVAG is a group of participants and family members who meet with us regularly to help critique our approach, assumptions and... the language we use. They provide us with essential feedback on how our services work and help us strategically plan for the future.
Normally, we have refreshments at Head Office but this time were treated to cupcakes, muffins and delicious cookies at Hub31 (next door!) Participants welcomed our guests, took orders, served food and made coffees for those that attended.
It was a great effort by all and a nice chance for CVAG to see the new site at Hub31! To find out more about our hospitality training program and other services with The Bridge, please email email@example.com or call 1800 274 343.
