The Bridge News

Updating the work environment for our teams

Message from our CEO Mary-Jane Stolp

While Covid-19 has brought with it many changes – how we work, live and support our vulnerable communities – The Bridge continues to adapt and is excited about the future.

Progress with our strategic and business plans is continuing with the relocation of our Head Office, commencement of Stage C of our Park Grove development and approval of the building project for our new site at Slattery Place, Pakenham. We have appointed David Kazakoff as our new
General Manager for Employment services and feel excited about his plans to lead our employment services strategy.

In other news, our Client Experience Committee, a sub-committee of our Board, commenced in April and gives participants / carers an important ‘voice at the table’ to enhance our services.

We hope you enjoy the August edition of our newsletter. Thank you to our wonderful team of employees and volunteers at The Bridge. We are proud of your ongoing contribution and resilience despite the challenges of delivering services
during Covid-19.
