New Annecto office opening in Ballarat, VIC

On Tuesday 14 February, the Annecto Western and Grampians region team officially opened their new office in Wendouree, a suburb of Ballarat, VIC.

While most people were sharing proofs of love on Valentine’s Day, our Annecto staff was working towards developing new relationships with locals from the Ballarat region.

“We want to be truly part of the community in which we operate. So that people can come to us, walk in and find out how to navigate the NDIS or the aged care system,” Cheryl De Zilwa, CEO of Annecto said during the event. 

Living independently at home at 98, and “no problems”

This month, we had a chat with Joan, one of Annecto’s aged care supports customers in regional Victoria, about her experience living independently in her own home.

Joan is 98 years old. She lives in the Grampians region, in the same house that she and her late husband Graham bought 60 years ago. Recently, Snowy the dog found his way to her, and the two of them have been living happily together since.

Joan’s younger son got in touch with Annecto to support his mum to keep living independently in her home.

Front door recycling

Front door recycling (FDR) is a clothing collection initiative offering real life work experience to adults with a disability in Ballarat.

FDR provides collection services for pre-loved clothing and textiles. We provide a complete solution to recycling, taking care of everything from collection through to distribution. Each household receives a FDR recycling bag and a collection calendar outlining FDR’s fortnightly collection dates for the year.

You can get involved, or organise to donate your preloved clothing, by contacting us.
