Chandrika

Support Worker

It’s my absolute joy to be part of a place as blessed as swara, where love resides beyond our abilities and disabilities. It is not just a place for someone to learn life skills but a place filled with compassion, patience, joy, and unconditional love to share.”

Seema

Support Worker

I came to swara as a student on my placement. When I entered the main room I could see and feel the love with which the staff and clients interacted with each other. I made up my mind then to work here as a volunteer until I could join swara as a staff. When I was offered a position of a support worker I was over the moon and grabbed it like a lifeline.
And here  I am still here today enjoying every minute of it.”

Samantha

Support Coordinator

I strive to achieve a more inclusive world and have a passion for making positive changes in the disability sector. Being a part of the swara family allows me to follow my passions and dreams in a caring environment. The legacy of the Pink Twins, the philosophy of swara, and all the participants and staff have taken a place in my heart. I am so thankful to be a part of this incredible environment.

We have one life and I believe all people should have the opportunity to live their life in a way that brings them pure joy, I love being a part of that journey for others.

Killie

Support Worker

Caring protective and kind. Three words used for a mother (which I am) and also for me in everything I choose to do in life. Empathy and compassion are always at my forefront with the endless need to help anyone or any creature. I am a person who has concern for others, and who is willing to give as much as possible (sometimes to my own detriment). Whether it’s helping family, personal friends, my work colleagues and our clients you can be guaranteed that I’m giving 100% of myself when I’m with you. Its sadly taken me 35 years of working life to realise that I can be paid for my passion of enriching another’s vulnerable life with support, nurturing and friendship. Thank you swara for making me happy whilst I work

Baz

I began my time with swara as a volunteer over 10 years ago. I immediately fell in love with everyone here and it felt like a second family to me. I shortly after became an employee. I enjoy being with the clients, showing people around and introducing others. I am proud of swara and the beautiful place it has become. It is an absolute privilege to work here and be a part of the swara family.

Yukari

Support Worker

I joined swara in May 2021 and my role is providing Art and Craft activities.  I was a Registered Nurse in Japan, then became an Assistant Nurse in Australia.  Regarding my art background, I am self-taught, always loved art as it gives me a purpose for living.  I joined a local art community institution called “Hands on Art” in 2018. Since then, I have been involved with a variety of community art projects such as festivals, workshops, and children’s arts etc.  Since this May, we have already made “Linen art” and “The gratitude tree”.  Both artworks were long term projects (3-5 weeks), and we used recycled/natural materials.  There is more to come for our open day!  To conclude, I would like to share absolutely everything I have with clients and support workers, and hope to be able to bring more colours and joy to swara!  Thank you very much everyone for having me 🙂
