What Happens When People DARE To DREAM?.

August 18th, 2014 by Deb Saville

Dare To Dream-Being Person centred THANKS to the staff at WA  Blue Sky….they dropped some of their ‘limiting beliefs’ and began to see that many, many things that they thought impossible…are actually quite achieveable.  And as a result, in a very short space of time, they are changing dramatically the lives of the people with disabilities that they work with!

Here’s some words from Roy Smith…Executive Officer….

In 2011 WA Blue Sky underwent its first Quality Management Framework assessment using the new methodology and outcome measures.  The results suggested several ‘Opportunities for Service Improvement’ (OSI’s).  Since that time the organisation has explored the concept of ‘Person Centred Planning’ (PCP) as a means of implementing the suggested OSI’s and has undertaken training in this approach to service planning and delivery through a number of sources.

Recently several staff attended the ‘Dare to Dream’ course delivered by Deb Saville as part of our strategy to implement PCP.  The feedback was extremely positive with staff reporting that the content opened their eyes to possibility for themselves, and particularly, for people who have a disability.  As a result of the feedback from staff we have decided to have all staff undertake the course so that the opportunity to ‘Dare to Dream’ is embraced as a fundamental tenet of service design and delivery for the whole organisation.  This will enable service users to ‘Live a life of Choice’ based on their own decisions.

And all I can say, Roy, is THANKS for the opportunity to live MY dream of Making A Difference!
