Rhys-story

Rhys Lord thinks CareWest’s Transition To Work Program is the best Transition To Work Program he has been to. Nice words indeed to hear – but really this story is about Rhys and the independence he has achieved through gaining work at Bunnings in Orange NSW. For the past six years Rhys’s positive attitude – “Give it your best shot” – has given him the opportunity to help people and allowed him to become a truly valued member of the Bunnings team. Rhys loves to work and enjoys being able to earn money to buy things he would like to in the future. He said CareWest’s Transition To Work program helped with confidence building, general life skills, organisational skills, and how to stay on task. But most importantly, the program encouraged him to approach the manager at Bunnings about potential work opportunities in the first place.
