Project success for retirement village and graduate

A National Disability Insurance Scheme project at a local retirement village has proved rewarding for both the village and the graduate, the village has claimed.

The latest graduate from the program, Mr Shah McPherson, has worked at Peninsula Village for just over 12 months, helping and caring for residents of the village.

"It was a rewarding experience for both parties," said chief executive Mr Shane Neaves.

"The confidence Shah gained from engaging with residents and leading technology and computer classes has led him to securing a job that he begins next year.

"The residents have really enjoyed working with him and Shah has imparted so much knowledge to our team and residents."

Mr McPherson's placement was part of a joint initiative between Peninsula Village and employment specialist Breakthru where he joined the village's leisure and lifestyle team to assist with resident activities and events.

Breakthru employee Mr Grant Tomkins attributed Mr McPherson's success to his social development at Peninsula Village and the growth he experienced leading the computer education classes.

"The partnership between Peninsula Villages and Breakthru with Shah this year has been hugely successful and Breakthru are now on the lookout for someone to replace Shah at the Village to continue the good work Shah has begun," Mr Tomkins said.

"We are excited Shah secured employment next year and wish him all the best in his next role," said Mr Neaves.
