Supported Employees at Endeavour Foundation’s Norlane packaging facility are proud to play their part in stirring the sweetest of staples into morning coffees across Australia.
Thanks to a long standing supplier agreement with Sugar Australia, the local facility’s packaging of CSR sugar sticks not only ensures a steady supply to households, cafes and workplaces the length and breadth of the nation, but crucially provides employment for local people with a disability.
When asked what he likes best about working at Endeavour Foundation, supported employee Gavin Leech shrugged and said, with a smile, “everything”.
“I like packing the sugar and I get to weigh the boxes too. I like it better than any other job.”
Richard Roberts, CEO Sugar Australia, said that they were delighted to be able to play a part in providing meaningful employment opportunities for people with a disability.
“We couldn’t be more pleased by the great job being done by the Endeavour Foundation team. The fact that we’re receiving a great service, while enabling people with a disability to get out into the workplace and explore their potential, means that it’s an ideal outcome all round.”
Endeavour Foundation’s Commercial Manager Anthony Tavelli said that supported employment is a fantastic way for people with a disability to develop new skills, grow in confidence and make friends.
“Endeavour Foundation has a proud history of providing opportunities for people with a disability to contribute to the local economy and enhance their level of community involvement.
“Through on-the-job experience you can gain recognised qualifications and enhance your skill set. These new experiences and relationships are a critical part of how connected we feel to the world in which we live, and how valued we feel by our community. Employment opportunities are crucial to inclusivity.”
