A Remarkable Journey of Finding Purpose with are-able in Castlemaine

At are-able, we are deeply moved to share the inspiring journey of one remarkable individual, Del, a testament to the incredible transformations that can occur when one believes in themselves.

Our story begins with Del, aged 64, who faced the daunting challenges of Chronic Pulmonary Heart Disease and Arterial Fibrillation. In December 2022, she encountered a life-altering medical episode that led to the installation of a pacemaker. Uncertainty loomed large as she sought her path forward, both in terms of health and employment.

This is where are-able stepped in, her trusted Employment Consultant, Helen Gildea, played a pivotal role in instilling self-belief and providing unwavering support. Together, they embarked on a journey of job searching, with a renewed sense of hope and determination.

Today, Del is employed at Returns Express, where she shines in the roles of Reception and Office Administration. Her journey to employment not only signifies her professional achievements but also serves as a testament to the power of self-confidence and resilience.

Although the client’s specific role doesn’t require additional support or interventions, it’s her newfound confidence and second chance at life that truly stand out. Her life has been transformed, and her sense of purpose reignited.

Del shares, “are-able has been instrumental in finding work for me so quickly right when I needed to start looking for work & it was perfect in every way that suited me.”

Del’s story serves as a shining example of how are-able, formerly WDEA Works, empowers individuals to overcome barriers, believe in themselves, and find their path to a brighter future.

are-able is not just a brand; it is a catalyst for change. It challenges stereotypes, breaks barriers, and creates an environment where every individual’s abilities are recognised, valued, and nurtured.

“I cannot thank Helen at are-able enough for the super friendly support & help that she has given me, from initiating my job interview to her fortnightly follow-up to make sure everything is running smoothly, assisting with my job plans and making sure that I have everything I need to give me satisfaction in my employment. She has been amazing.”
