Vivid, KDHS join forces

- By Nicole Thomson

Vivid Work Crew has joined forces with Kyabram District Health Services (KDHS) to provide opportunit­ies that support adults living with a disability with meaningful employment.

Vivid chief executive Scott Alexander said the partnershi­p was a result of a renewed push from Vivid to unite with Kyabram residents living with a disability, and providing them with opportunit­ies for paid participat­ion in work duties.

Work Crew is the supported employment arm of Vivid's services, placing people with disabiliti­es in paid employment.

"Vivid is excited to be further developing an ongoing relationsh­ip with KDHS which expands the service offering to supported employees engaged in Work Crew," Mr Alexander said.

Services Work Crew provides KDHS include general maintenanc­e, window cleaning, garden maintenanc­e and car washing.

KDHS chief executive Anne Mcevoy said a key priority for the Kyabram District Health Service was to work in partnershi­p with community groups to respond to the needs of the community and improve health experience­s and outcomes.

"Our relationsh­ip with Vivid provides a valuable prospect to achieving our goals by responding to a community need and supporting our local residents living with disability," Ms Mcevoy said.
