Dear E-focus Friends and Supporters,

While I reflect on the year about to close an start planning for the year ahead I am thankful for the amazing contribution made by the E-focus team and the wonderful support we enjoy from our local community and colleague agencies.

In many ways it has been a tricky and unsettled year with many changes and challenges. Likewise, there have also been many successes across all our programs and these are well documented in the Annual Report (released today and on the E-focus website). A copy of the report can be found here.

The important thing is that our services and programs have made a real difference in people’s lives. When I look across the 4 divisions of our organisation (Training and Employment, Apprenticeships Matter, Community Programs and Corporate Services) I see great work being done and the resulting improvement in people’s employment options and quality of life.  For your support in 2017 and on behalf of the people we have the privilege to assist, I say a heartfelt THANKYOU !

I hope the Christmas break will provide a time for rest and relaxation and a time with loved ones doing the things you like to do most. Christmas is not always an easy time for some and our hearts go out to those who have lost loved ones during the year or who for whatever reason find the season a difficult time.

So, for those who can and have some time off work – enjoy the break, keep safe and I look forward to working with you all in 2018.

Merry Christmas and Seasons Greetings,

George Giuliani
