AN UPDATE FOR OUR VALUED CUSTOMERS and SUPPORTERS
Once the initial fog of COVID-19 confusion cleared and an number government initiatives emerged, we decided not go down the redundancy route.
Only two workers aren't working due to our inability to socially distance them. They are on leave. So, we are operating as usual.
As to the future, I have set a date of 30th of June 2022 for my retirement.
Hopefully, in the meantime, I can find someone or a group of people who share our values and vision and who are willing to commit to the future of this Social Enterprise.
I am buoyed by the kind response from our customers and others. Both as well wishes and generous offers to assist with restructuring.
I will now endeavour to bring them together to hopefully create an entity that can continue to both provide a place of gainful employment for people living with disabilities and one that applies sustainable gardening practices.
Although The Sustainable Gardener is no longer a registered service provider, we are still prepared to work directly with those receiving NDIS support.
As a social enterprise we not only employ people living with disability, some of whom receive NDIS support, but are now increasingly providing household garden maintenance services to others as part of their individual NDIS support plans.
Our intrepid workers now have the opportunity to assist others living with a disability who need help with their gardens.
The financial arrangement is with the customer directly. They receive the invoice from us and pay us within 7 days of the work being undertaken. The customers submit a claim themselves to recover the costs from the NDIS under their plan
We offer concessions for NDIS clients in the form of waiving the initial consult fee of $120 including GST.
If you are receiving NDIS support or you know someone on NDIS that may need help with their garden, why not get in touch. We would be pleased to assist you.
A nice gesture from
The Rehabilitation Services team in appreciation of us assisting with the transition of a worker back into the workforce after a sustaining an injury with a previous employer.
