Sharon’s 24/7 Support Team


Maddington, WA

Sharon’s 24/7 Interchange support team is recognised for their significant contribution to people living with disability, including providing support to start a new life at home and in the community after incarceration.

In Australia, approximately 10 per cent of soon-to-be released prisoners have an intellectual disability. They face a range of challenges upon their release from prison due to their needs and the complexity of the service delivery system. Many people experience homelessness, unemployment and social isolation, leading to a high risk of re-offending.

Sharon faced multiple challenges on her release, including trauma from negative experiences with a previous service provider. By building a relationship of trust and understanding, Sharon’s team helped her develop necessary life skills and independence, and the team supported her by putting everyday routines into her life and home. Sharon is now responsible for her own budgeting, shopping, cooking and maintaining her home, enabling her to live well with greater autonomy.

They Call me Shuffles

They Call me Shuffles

    A diagnosis with Parkinson's changes a lot of things: Motor function, non-motor functions, but maybe even more powerful is the changes in social interactions. I personally don't mind being called "Shuffles" now, I did at first (8 or so years ago I think), I...
