Hi everyone, my name is Claire West. I have worked with Xavier since 1994 in a few different roles – as a Support Worker, a structured respite provider, a keyworker and in my current role as Support Worker Coordinator.
Xavier combines the best of both worlds. It is an extremely flexible, family friendly employer and it is a fantastic organisation that does amazing work. I love coming to work each day. My colleagues are a group of extremely dedicated and passionate people. I also get to coordinate an amazing team of diverse, caring, highly skilled Support Workers that work within a number of different programs.
As part of my role I meet with the families and beautiful children who receive direct care services from Xavier. It is very rewarding to be able to work with families to achieve the goals and dreams they have for their children – whether it is to join a club, start a hobby or to simply have the opportunity to go for a walk at the waterfront or a picnic in the park.
