JOY’ by QArt’s Mya Wilson, Wurundjeri artist - Commissioned by Endeavour Foundation as the artwork for our Reconciliation Action Plan.
“This idea for this painting was conceived during the Covid pandemic. I wanted to express the disharmony and the multiple challenges that people faced during this time. This is a contrast to the Dreamtime when all living creatures lived harmoniously and sustainably on the land and in the sea. I have used modern bright pastel colours to lighten the mood. The intention is to create a feeling of happiness, growth and hope.”
Retention of client files
The contents of a file will be destroyed 10 years after the death of a client. If the death of the client is not able to be ascertained, the file will be retained for 85 years from the client’s date of birth, and for 10 years after the last client service provision. Both of these criteria will be met before files are destroyed.
If Endeavour has not actioned a referral for a ‘new’ client by carrying out an assessment or providing a service, the file can be destroyed 10 years after the last contact.
If the client was younger than 18 years when they ceased to be a client of Endeavour Foundation the 10 year period should not start until they were 18.
If family members wish to obtain personal items of the clients contained in the file before it is destroyed they should contact Endeavour Foundation.
