Message from the Board Chair

Tuesday 22 December 2020

Good morning,

On behalf of the Mercy Connect Board, I would like to personally express my appreciation to all staff, who have shown strong commitment and resilience throughout this year.

The year 2020 has been difficult for many of us. It is important to recognise the challenges that we faced ranging from bushfires, drought, the Disability Royal Commission, and an unprecedented pandemic. And yet, Mercy Connect has meet these challenges and achieved many successful outcomes.

I am extremely grateful for the resilience and rapid responses that you all have shown through these unprecedented times. The loyalty to Mercy Connect and importantly the people who we support, has been highly recognised and acknowledged by myself and our Board of Directors.

This year we released our Strategic Plan for the upcoming three years. It is with pleasure to announce, that already we have achieved many priorities and initiatives. We have not only achieved these goals, but we also achieved them with compassion and humility, which has been respectful and supportive to our participants, families and guardians.

Moving into 2021, I have every confidence in management and staff, to continue the journey of Mercy Connect becoming a leading disability service provider. We will continue to be a vibrant, innovative and compassionate organisation that upholds our traditions and values, to better serve people in need to live fulfilled lives.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I wish you and your families all a safe and Merry Christmas and look forward to delivering on our plans in the coming year.

Together we grow.

Matthew Clancy
