On April 18, Barkuma held a breakfast event for South Australian organisations at the Rob Roy Hotel. We provided an overview of Barkuma’s services, with a focus on how businesses may become involved with and support our organisation. It was our pleasure to also welcome Lucy Cornes from SheShopped and Bruce from Des's Minibuses who spoke about their involvement with Barkuma and the importance of having a diverse workforce. They were also able to provide insight on the support available which makes employing a person with disability easy. Also discussed were the benefits experienced, for the person with disability, the business and other staff members.
Several new businesses were represented and showed interest in our services, both at the factory and in employment. Our thanks go to all guests who attended this networking and information event, it was inspiring to see so many South Australians excited about supporting people with disability.
