Skye Harvey Community Connections – Team

Organisation:

Jewish Community Services

We Speak Your Language!
The incredible multicultural team of staff and volunteers at JCS can Connect, Deliver Culturally Appropriate Care, and Display Compassion and Sensitivity in 11 Different Languages.
Volunteers developed a “Chatter That Matters” programme to provide remote social support, and
a “Circle of Support” Program was developed and delivered to maintain Social and Community face-to-face connection once Covid restrictions were lessened.
This included a monthly luncheon, an exercise group, art group and bus trips.
“Smart Choices for a Brighter Future” included talks about actively planning to age well.
Birthday cards and food treats were delivered during the year. What a joy for a client to open the door or letterbox and find they have been remembered.
Despite Covid constraints, constant changes and personal challenges the team went over and above their expected duties to ensure clients felt connected and involved in activities.
Their passion and loyalty are recognised by the Board of Management & the whole community who are proud to nominate this team for The ACSA Recognition Programme
