Message from our CEO
This year I encountered a story that reinforced my strong belief in our Mission in elevating those most vulnerable in our communities. Hemi and Tane joined Little Owls Pre-school at a challenging time for their whanau – their Dad was serving a six-year prison sentence and their Mum had just had another baby.
Our quality teaching team at the centre employed support at a range of levels. Their observation of signs of developmental delay resulted in a referral to Learning Support (Ministry of Education) for speech and language therapy. They assisted the whanau to access one-on-one support for challenging behaviours which enabled us to continue to help them learn. They worked with Hemi and Tane’s mother to access our Health and Wellbeing team for her own mental health counselling needs whilst her children attended preschool. Throughout the time they were at Little Owls, Hemi and Tane continued to display challenging behaviours requiring intensive support. Our caregivers helped one child gain a diagnosis that entitled him to early intervention therapy and significant support. The teachers developed individual behaviour plans and intensive one-to-one support plans well beyond the scope of most early childhood education providers. The team also worked collaboratively with our social work team to build a more comprehensive understanding of the whanau and their behaviour issues.
Both children have now successfully settled into primary school. For both children this was the result of a long and intensive transition plan in which the Manager Early Childhood Education worked with the Lead Professional, Speech Therapist, Principal, Behaviour Specialist Learning Support, Mum and the children. We supported this family in total for over three years and the children and wider whanau are now doing well. Despite the children’s diagnoses, challenges and socio-economic vulnerabilities, the whanau are thriving.
We know the long-term and lasting impact of early intervention. It is an ethos that threads all our services supporting vulnerable youth and tamariki. For me it is the stories of impact for children like Hemi and Tane that underscore the resilience and determination that it takes as a service to realise social equity, to journey alongside people towards growth and development.
Despite challenges of the coronavirus pandemic, our organisation has had a strong year and I believe we are well positioned to carry on the healing Mission of Jesus Christ into the new year. As CEO charged with ensuring that Mission is achieved, I am thankful for the caregivers who work so hard and I am thankful for the backing we have from our Boards and our communities, in particular the government agencies, philanthropic and not-for-profit groups and volunteers. I also remain humbled by the trust that people and communities continue to have in us, thus our committed to a continuous improvement approach.
Ngā mihi mahana,
Message from our Chair
Our organisation, our people, and the communities we work in have confronted a year like no other. The St John of God Hauora Trust Board again expresses its gratitude for the way our caregivers met these challenges. They displayed resilience, adaptability, and resourcefulness, with the people we care for always front and centre of our decision-making.
The Covid-19 pandemic shed light on the policies and procedures that helped sustain operations and to keep caregivers and residents safe. This event has showcased our capability in responding to emerging public health emergencies and engenders confidence in preparedness for future events. When your systems are tested to the extent that they were during lockdown it always reveals opportunities to fine-tune for future events. I am very pleased that we have embraced these learnings, and with the level of shared learning across the organisation.
The conclusion of the $3m refurbishment programme at St John of God Karori has been another expression of the resilience of our teams. Residents and caregivers faced challenging conditions during the building programme. The Karori team managed to maintain a real sense of home for our residents alongside ensuring our high standards of care were not compromised. I would like to acknowledge the project team and partners in delivering this phase of the project on schedule. It has made a positive difference for our residents and gives us a facility that is a welcoming environment and ready for many more years of service to the community.
The Finance & Procurement Team worked with dedication to meet the challenges of the year, evidenced by their support for our Regional Managers to achieve a budgeted surplus in the 2020 Financial Statement. Covid-19, Pay Equity and the Karori refurbishment all represented destabilising factors that we have navigated in large part by astute financial leadership.
Amidst these overarching trends the Board would like to acknowledge less visible trends in the Financial year. Steady improvements in medication safety processes and resulting events, increasing enrolments at Little Owls, and our first-class Transitional Rehabilitation care at the Granada Centre are all evidence of a collective commitment to our shared values.
We welcomed two new trustees during the year, Rob Wise representing St John of God Health Care and Tim Sissons, a Christchurch-based lawyer. They are both adding real value for the Board and I am delighted with the way the Trust Board is working together to support Steve and his team. I would like to pay particular tribute to Dr Kristin Good, who led a Board sub-committee on our response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the huge workload she had in an incredibly difficult time, Kristin took time to share her knowledge and experience, giving both the Board and the management team huge support and confidence as we worked together to ensure our response to COVID-19 was the best it could be.
I would like to personally thank all our caregivers for the contribution you make to our organisation and the way you live our values in support of the many people we care for.
The teams across New Zealand dedicated to supporting the people we work alongside.
