On Thursday 15 April 2021, I was invited to the official Link Wentworth Housing Launch at NSW Parliament House. When I arrived, the room was full and positive and the staff were helpful in every way—it felt very organised.
I thought it was good to sit and have a coffee and listen to speeches from the new CEO of Link Wentworth, Andrew McAnulty, as well as the Chair Mike Allen. Aunty Ann Weldon from Metro LALC did a strong Welcome to Country. We also had a special guest, which was the Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services, The Hon. Gareth Ward.
As we were listening to the speeches, we got to enjoy a nice breakfast. There was also yummy cake, which was cut by Mike Allen and The Hon. Gareth Ward.
The atmosphere was positive and it was good to be able to move and mingle with the Directors and guests.
The morning for me was a good one, due to being part of a new chapter with the hope of improvement for tenants and the community. It’s good to know that the Link Wentworth Board, CEO and staff are willing to do their best.
Thank you for the opportunity to be part of the launch.
