WE’RE LEADING THE CARE REVOLUTION.
At ComLink our staff and volunteers are united by a shared vision, Leading the Care Revolution. Understanding who we are is the key to understanding our organisation, our vision, values, culture and the ways that we do things differently to other companies.
At ComLink, our mission is to link the community through affordable transport and care solutions, develop a dedicated workforce of amazing volunteers and staff and continue to innovate to help people live longer, happier and socially connected lives!
ComLink has a large range of services throughout Queensland and the best part about it all is, we are in the business of saying YES! Our mission is to ensure everyone who needs assistance, has access to it. Our moto is, “if we can’t do it, we will find someone who can!”
This year has seen many highlights and one of the most important things has been how our services have changed lives for the better; the journey our clients have had, the pride our staff have felt and the connectedness we all share.
Not only did we expand further and increase our customer base we stood back and reflected on how we can make a stronger more positive impact to the communities we serve. We led change by thinking and creating visions for the futures we want to see.
We are constantly looking out for areas of improvement, looking at indicators of future potential and then visualizing ourselves in these futures; the futures we would want to live in as we age. This has resulted in a strong business model with unique service offerings. Our team has contributed to this as they push the boundaries for the clients’ best interest, every day. I am proud of our unique team.
This quote from Steve Jobs sums up the ComLink team in pursuit of greatness.
“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes….the ones who see things differently – they’re not fond of rules…You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things…they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
CEO Feda Adra
This past year has been one of strong financial growth and we have seen noticeable increases in profits. Being a “for-purpose” not for profit organisation, more profits can be channelled back into serving the community.
ComLink has historically been so well-known for providing excellent transport and social support services. I am proud to say that ComLink has already expanded into Care services, and now offers Home Care Packages. These will feature strongly in ComLink’s future growth, and we feel “proud to be unique” in the way that we work with clients in delivering these services.
As Chairman, it never ceases to amaze me to see new staff, new ideas, innovative concepts and the growth of services in new regions.
Welcome to our newest Directors John Pearson, Sharee Webster and Rosie Overfield. They have a very diverse range of qualities, skills and knowledge to offer ComLink and will complement the existing Board.
Of course, an organisation like ComLink, would not be able to exist without the loyalty and support from staff and volunteers. I would like to congratulate my follow directors, our CEO, staff and volunteers for the great results and I am looking forward to the future ahead.
Chairman Bruce Warrell
The aim of a Home Care Package is to help older people live as independently as possible, with a focus on working with you, rather than doing for you. Home Care Packages are about building on your strengths, capacity and goals to promote your ability to remain living in your own home longer.
