"Tommy is always excited to go out with Meraki and comes home very happy. We are grateful to have outstanding support that we can trust, where he is taught life skills through fun and motivating social activities and outings. Tommy has made such fantastic progress with developing his skills in the community which is imperative for his happiness and development. Thank you!"
- Leanne, Tommy's Mum.
"Meraki provides unbelievable support for our son. They understand his needs and our needs as a family. Jamie always comes home full of smiles and stories when he’s been out with Meraki. He is gaining confidence in the community as well as building meaningful relationships. Thank you, Meraki!"
- Vicky, Jamie's Mum.
"We joined the Meraki family in December 2021. Will has really enjoyed accessing the community on the weekends with his support workers but his favourite Meraki activity is going on the Retreats! We love that Meraki uses qualified and passionate support workers who love Will and are dedicated to helping him achieve his potential. We really do feel like we are part of a family with Meraki. The team have done a wonderful job caring for the kids and also supporting the families. We look forward to Will making more memories with his buddies.
- Cheralee, Will's Mum.
"We are so incredibly fortunate to have found the most dedicated support worker for our son at Meraki disability. Dean has developed an extremely trusting bond with William where he is genuinely cared for and understood. William now can confidently access the community and experience new and challenging things based on his interests beyond what we ever imagined. We know William is always in the best of hands but most importantly he is always so excited for his next outing with Meraki."
- Catherine & Grant, William's Parents.
"Dean has been involved in Clancy’s life for a number of years, both as an educator in his classes at Giant Steps and to accompany him on weekend outings and overnight camps. That he and his brother Ryan have been able to do a full 180 and establish a disability service, while maintaining successful rugby league careers, is a testament to their dedication and drive to help others. When Clancy is supported by Meraki, I know he is safe, with someone who genuinely wants to spend time with him and is having fun. Above all, I know he’s hanging out with a mate and that’s pretty special!
- Jen, Clancy’s Mum.
