AGM 2014

The Presbyterian Support Central Annual General Meeting was held at St Andrew’s on the Terrace in Wellington yesterday, marking 105 years of providing quality aged care and social services in the Central region.

At 5pm Presbyterian Support Central Board chair Rod Oakly opened the meeting by welcoming the more than 60 attendees and thanking them for their support.

“Supporting and strengthening lives remains the focal point for Presbyterian Support Central. With your support, and others like you, we can continue to make a positive difference in people’s lives every day.”

Chief Executive Chris Graham’s speech summarised the successes of both Enliven and Family Works throughout the past year.

“At Enliven, we are the fifth largest aged care organisation in New Zealand with almost 900 care beds, more than 2,500 Community Support customers and we are constantly striving to improve.”

In relation to Family Works services, Chris focused on the Social Workers in Schools, Out of Gate and Family Disputes Resolution programmes all of which started in 2013/14.

“It’s been both exciting and humbling to see out presence and services continuing to grow.”

Guest speaker Children’s Commissioner Dr Russell Wills spoke about child poverty in New Zealand and the implications it has on education and employment and our future generations.

The meeting concluded with a benediction from board member Phil Beechey who will attend his last board meeting next month after nine years of service.

“You invest in Presbyterian Support Central because of its aims and because you see the happiness that it brings people. I have had some absolutely wonderful experiences visiting the sites – it has been a great experience.”
