As a small provider, Kira Community Services often looks to accessing grant-based opportunities.
Earlier this year, we applied for a scholarship to the Australian Institute of Management WA (AIM WA), for use with frontline managers.
Kira’s Marleen Roch attended a ceremony to receive the scholarships. Many NFP’s who attended shared our appreciation in this period of fiscal restraint. A little goes a very long way of us! After the presentations, Kira had the opportunity to share their experiences from the 2017 scholarship program.
Attendees were excited to hear how the scholarship was used to complement Kira’s NDIS readiness change program which included:
- Redesign of the organisational structure;
- Investment in frontline coordinators to support families transition to NDIS;
- Refreshed service design and delivery;
- Implementation of Service Management Systems; and
- Extending service centres further north.
These changes have resulted in increased positive feedback from families as we continue to innovate through service design to achieve our members goals.
The team at Kira are most grateful to AIM WA for their generosity.
