RESIDENTS

Thank you to HM’s and DSW’s
Following a successful 2015 AGM on 28 October 2015, I would like to congratulate all House Managers and Disability Support Workers who accompanied residents on the night. Everyone dressed up for the occasion looking wonderful, happy and relaxed for dinner.

Thank you to volunteer Mike Bailey

Forsight appreciates Past Chairman Michael Bailey for his voluntary contribution to the 2013 Annual Review. Michael has again captured the essence of the Forsight Community at work and at home. Again this year, Forsight will benefit from this interesting and topical resource that tells the Forsight Story for all to enjoy.

Donors appreciate that Forsight applies 100 percent of all Specific Donations to each project that is agreed to at the time a donation is received. It is even better for donors to be able to follow the progress of where their donation is going, followed by a picture of the project when it is complete.

If you would like a copy of the Forsight 2013 Annual Review email forsight.aus@forsight.net.au
to have your copy posted to you.
