CEO Review 2022
2022/2023 has been another exceptional year in our work enabling tangata whaikaha to live engaging and fulfilling lives, and in our work responding to the evolving needs of rangatahi and communities.
An absolute highlight for me over the last year has been witnessing our unique Mission in action. Our values bring our people together, and is the basis of the whakawhanaungatanga or sense of belonging that guides how we support the people who live with us and the people who work for us.
We are respectful of, and committed to, honouring the trust that is placed in us – by tangata whaikaha, by rangatahi, by whānau and communities. We strive to empower people to realise their full potential through living their best lives – whilst fulfilling their aspirations and goals.
Throughout the pandemic, our sector has faced unprecedented challenges from many directions. Each challenge has provided us opportunity to evolve the systems, structures and processes that underpin our capacity to deliver excellent support. As we emerge into this post-pandemic phase, we now address new challenges, in continuing to shape and align our services with the needs of people and communities.
We have now fully completed the Organisational Redesign process, that has added new capabilities and skillsets to our kaupapa. I am delighted that we have realised key appointments, including welcoming Henare Te Karu, Kaumatua – Māori Cultural Advisor, Risk and Compliance Advisor Andrew Loo, and Digital and Technology Manager Jason McTague. Our Health and Ability Services Division has now fully staffed its leadership team, with the appointment of John McManus as General Manager Health and Ability Services and Heather Brunton as Clinical Services Manager.
Our 2021-25 Strategic Plan is now in its third year. The strategy places the people we support at the core of all we do. I am incredibly proud of our teams for the successful achievement of 62 key initiatives despite the challenges experienced throughout the year. Our services are more robust and resilient through investment in our people, and in the technology and systems that underpin our success. It is my firm belief that at the heart of the strategic development and coordination lays the foundations on which our 320 dedicated and compassionate caregivers conduct their best work.
Our kaupapa is further enriched by the deep expertise of our governing board. Their vision for a better more connected Aotearoa is reflected in the priorities outlined in our strategic plan. Their individual experience and capability is often the unseen hand behind so many of the positive outcomes we achieve each day.
The highlights of this year were all focused on the strategic themes ‘The People We Support’ and the people who work for us - “Strengthening Our Culture”, and include:
- Our Young Parents Development Team who worked tirelessly to establish the HOPE Project – a programme that will support young parents to build connections, learn and grow as a whānau towards a better future;
- Our dedicated team at St John of God Halswell who performed admirably during challenging recruitment and staffing conditions in late 2022;
- Our St John of God Karori whānau who worked to increase the number of tangata whaikaha we support in the Wellington Region, and to deliver more respite care;
- Our incoming leadership team in Health and Ability Services who will elevate our clinical operations and systems, while ensuring we advocate for the needs of the tangata whaikaha we are called on to support;
- Our Support Services project leads who have made improvements to our Risk Management systems, as well as mapping our Digital and Technology path towards a productive and sustainable future.
In this year, the support of and coordination with our government partners has never been as important. We continue our efforts to advocate for the needs of the people we support, while working closely with partners to elevate our standards and quality.
Our work is also sustained by our rich landscape of philanthropic supporters in Aotearoa. We were pleased that our work continues to be aligned with the kaupapa of the Rātā Foundation, through their multi-year grant commitment in support of our work at St John of God Waipuna. Other key supporters have also contributed to enhancing the work that we deliver including the Eliza White Charitable Trust, the Meridian Energy Decarbonisation Fund, Lottery Community, Te Rangatahi Tumanako Trust, Kiwi Gaming Foundation, the Hoatu Fund, and Sport New Zealand.
This year we have also seen the release of the Stolen Lives, Marked Souls Report from Royal Commission into Abuse in Care. We continue to express our support for survivors, and the important work of the Commission that supports survivors and their whānau towards healing and a hopeful future.
Our way forward starts with our shared values of Manaakitanga, Aroha, Whakaute, Tika and Hiranga. The life and teaching of Saint John of God brings those values together in our collective vision to continue the healing mission of Jesus. His story shows how we respond to those most vulnerable in our society, and in how we should answer the call to serve and support.
Thank you for your ongoing support and trust in St John of God Hauora Trust.
Ngā mihi mahana,
Message from our Board Chair
The Board of Trustees is proud to present the 2023 annual report of St John of God Hauora Trust, a reflection of our achievements and challenges in the past year. We are grateful for the work of our caregivers, who have shown resilience and compassion in delivering services to the people who need them most. We are also thankful for the support of our partners, donors, and stakeholders, who have enabled us to continue our mission of enhancing the health and wellbeing of our communities.
The year has also seen our organisation sow the seeds of future growth in the support we offer people and communities. The HOPE Project partnership with the Society of St Vincent de Paul, via the Ozanam Canterbury Charitable Trust, may provide a model to deliver more wrap-around support alongside social providers. Our increasing engagement with Whaikaha and Te Whatu Ora will increasingly put the disabled person at the centre of our focus, and ensure our future service delivery best meets community and individual needs. The St John of God Halswell HealthCert Audit this year was an encouraging reflection upon the promise of what our unique model of care can achieve for the people we support.
We remain grateful for our productive and supportive relationship with our parent-organisation St John of God Health Care. Through the year we have seen that support in action through advice and coordination for our ongoing Lucena Development project at Halswell, and in our coordination and projects in relation to the Royal Commission.
Careful stewardship of our resources, across the organisation, has put us in the position of achieving our modest, yet hard-won, surplus in the end of year accounts. While we finished behind our prior year result, we can be pleased with what was achieved in a changing and inflationary environment.
We would like to acknowledge and thank all the members of the Board of Trustees for their dedication and expertise in guiding and governing our organisation. We welcome Graeme Coles as a new Trustee, who brings depth and insight from his position as General Manager Digital And Technology for St John of God Health Care. We are also delighted to be joined on the Board by Stella Ward who brings important clinical governance capability to our Board. We acknowledge the valued contribution of Andrew Dickerson who resigned as a trustee earlier this year due to ill health, and also our SJGHC representatives Steve Goldsworthy and Lisa Evans who have had career changes that has resulted in them also stepping down.
We would also like to express our appreciation and respect for Chief Executive Officer Sarah Hillier, who has led our organisation with clear vision and strong compassion for those we are called on to serve.
Finally, we would like to thank all our caregivers, who are at the heart of everything we do. You are the ones who make a difference in the lives of our clients every day. You are the ones who embody our values of manaakitanga, aroha, whakaute, tika, and hiranga. You are the ones who make us proud to be part of St John of God Hauora Trust.
This year His Holiness Pope Francis encouraged us all to join hands and take bold steps to “Let Justice and Peace Flow” throughout our world. Thank you for your individual contribution and support for our Mission that seeks achieve hauora for communities and people in Aotearoa.
“So too, like a river basin with its many tiny and larger tributaries, the Church is a communion of countless local Churches, religious communities and associations that draw from the same shared waters. Each source adds its unique and irreplaceable contribution, until all flow together into the vast ocean of God’s loving mercy. In the same way that a river is a source of life for its surroundings, our synodal Church must be a source of life for our common home and all its inhabitants. In the same way that a river gives life to all kinds of animal and plant life, a synodal Church must give life by sowing justice and peace in every place it reaches.”
MESSAGE OF HIS HOLINESS POPE FRANCIS FOR THE WORLD DAY OF PRAYER FOR THE CARE OF CREATION
