The innovation and achievements of StGiles were highlighted at Launceston Town Hall on Tuesday, with 2018 dubbed the ‘year of fruition’ for the disability support service.
The annual Inclusivity event served as an opportunity to celebrate the individuals, businesses and community groups who continue to support the organisation in its work towards a more inclusive society.
With about 70 people in attendance and guest speakers providing insight into StGiles’ projects and collaborations, chairman Ben Coull said 2018 had not been short of highlights.
“We chose to reflect on 2018 as the year of fruition,” he said.
“That means we can finally say that we have embraced the NDIS and are now well and truly delivering services within the NDIS frame.
“Our reward has been seeing individuals thrive with services that fit their needs, of which Studio Space is a fine example.”
The event also served as an opportunity for StGiles to acknowledge its biggest advocates, with presentations made to the organisation’s bronze, silver, gold and platinum supporters.
Among the recipients was Mudbar owner and chef, Don Cameron.
The restaurant’s Blue Diamond Dinner in August raised more than $30,000 for StGiles.
