The team at Hunter Care Group (HCG) understand what it means to function in the frontline of NDIS care.
Operations manager Mathew McKeown said each member of their team had worked as a support worker and he believed this experience, along with HCG's innovation and dedication to staff and clients, was what sets them apart from other providers.
"This is something that we feel as though was lacking when working for other larger organisations and it is a goal of ours to continue to develop the culture and consistent supports that we currently provide," Mathew said.
HCG is nominated in three categories at the Australian Small Business Champions Awards:
- Health Improvement Services
- Business Growth Award
- Young Business Entrepreneur (CEO Jarrod Burns)
"HCG currently support anyone that is eligible for the NDIS," Mathew said.
"We are able to assure those that receive supports that they get consistency, reliability and a regular point of contact."
HCG utilises a Case Management Platform which is free of charge and creates a point of difference from the autonomous online platforms.
"This is a simple but effective method to ensure that we as a service provider are held accountable for all supports and that we do not lose touch with the personalised approach to those that we support," Mathew said.
"We are extremely proud of the foundations that have been built for HCG and are excited for what's to come in the future."
Matthew believes nomination for the finals is great recognition for the organisation and staff of over 150, and reinforces their drive to change the way the industry operates in the Hunter.
"For HCG to be recognised on this level will also increase the audience for our future business plans and goals," he said.
HCG is located at 55 Broadmeadow Road, Broadmeadow.
