This year, it was an honour and absolute privilege to accept the appointment of Chief Executive Officer of St John of God Hauora Trust. As Regional Manager of our Community, Youth and Child Services since 2014, I have always felt a strong connection to our shared Mission and Values, and the skilled professionals who continually evolve to meet the needs of young people. I am enthusiastic and excited about our future, and the impact our people will have on the community in the coming years.
Our first priority is the establishment of the Strategic Plan 2021-25. This plan guides our pathway and action towards serving the people we support better, and further raising the standard of the excellent support we already deliver.
During this year we have already taken important steps to improve our service. The St John of God Karori Internal Review has provided the catalyst to embed the My Life Model of Care at the facility to make it a great place to live and work. Our Southern team has contributed greatly to the transformation. The Southern service has had a stellar year under increased challenges within the sector.
Amidst the complex environment of Community, Youth and Child Services, we have continued to evolve our strong partnership approach with Ara Poutama (Department of Corrections). We continue our important work of supporting young parents in their journey towards growth and development. Our service continues to be there to support the mental health and wellbeing of young people through our customised counselling and support services, and is continually adapting different ways to engage with young people at the time they most need support.
This has also been an outstanding year for our early childhood education service Little Owls. Complete centre refurbishment, ongoing improvements to the quality learning programme and professional development, has resulted in a service of which we are all immensely proud. We all know the lifelong benefits of quality early learning, and our continued development of this service is a vital element of our work.
In addition, this year we continued to evolve our collaborative approach with the funding agencies and philanthropic organisations that support us. I would like to acknowledge all of the people representing these agencies, that are committed to improving life and wellbeing for our clients and residents through the generous donations and grants awarded this year.
I would also like to sincerely acknowledge our team of more than 300 caregivers. Each of you show passion and commitment in your care and support of our residents and clients, bringing your vital skills and experience to bear in our collective endeavour. I look forward to working alongside you all as we realise our shared Vision.
Nga mihi mahana,
Message from our Board Chair
This year the organisation accomplished a number of important objectives as we continued our focus on delivering outstanding levels of care for the people we support.
The appointment of Sarah Williams as Chief Executive Officer was an important development, after her performance as Acting CEO revealed the qualities that had made her such a an impressive leader at the helm of Community, Youth and Child Services. Since her appointment as CEO in June 2021, the Board has continued to be impressed with Sarah’s leadership, as she, along with the Leadership team, has focused on improving operations and progressing important projects.
I would take the opportunity to again acknowledge the outstanding contribution that Steve Berry made to St John of God Hauora Trust during his tenure as CEO. Steve was able to make a real difference to operational performance and there is no doubt he left the organisation in better shape than when he joined us.
Rob Wise retired from his executive role with St John of God Healthcare at the end of June and therefore stepped down as their representative on the SJGHT board. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 Rob was never able to visit us, however this did not stop him making a real difference to our board and for this we thank him and wish him well in his retirement. I am delighted to welcome Steve Goldsworthy, Group Director Finance at SJGHC, to the board as Rob’s replacement.
The collective efforts of all our caregivers, resulted in a pleasing surplus that trends us towards financial sustainability. Our surplus of $1.2m delivers an earnings (EBITDA) to income ratio of 9.8%. This affords us the capability to meet future demand for services and the agility to adapt to evolving community needs.
This year the Board has also approved in principle the case to build the Lucena Unit at St John of God Halswell. Adding 24 rooms will be our most significant capacity expansion in over a decade. Strong demand for our care is reflective of our unique and quality service, the Board is committed to moving this project into action.
When raised up by the support of others, our appreciation and thinking radiates outwards. Pope Francis called our support for those most vulnerable a true sign of health, and central to continuing the healing Mission of Jesus.
I would like to thank you for your empathy in understanding the needs of others, and for your actions in supporting the people and communities in greatest need.
The teams across New Zealand dedicated to supporting the people we work alongside.
