An independent evaluation of Essential Personnel’s Lifestyle Services states that

“The independent evaluator was particularly impressed by:

  • The atmosphere and ‘buzz’ of excitement and sense of belonging created at the Northam centre.
  • The ability to match support workers to clients for compatibility, interest and culture and changing the staff when it is not working.
  • The holistic approach using the Skills Centre, community activities, in-home activities and links with Essential Personnel and the way that services often benefit not only the participant but the whole family.
  • The motivation of some staff who consumers described as “Doing whatever it takes….brilliant…s/he is really there for me.”
