We are changing

Update April 2018

One Door is continuing our journey to reform and restructure the organisation to do whatever is possible to ensure the future. It is not easy, and it is painful for all of us. We have heard the message from our staff consultations that concern for our client group is paramount, be assured that is what is driving all of us. 

We retain our commitment to keep delivering services where we have existing Commonwealth government contracts, within the financial constraints that we're given.

One of our guiding principles in allocating our scarce resources has been to maintain frontline services to support our clients. Even with this commitment, the Commonwealth reduction in funding for the 2018/2019 year means that, sadly, there will be an overall reduction in our workforce.

In managing operations, we will no longer have Regional Manager and Area Leader roles. Instead, we will have a General Manager Programs and a General Manager NDIS, supported by 4 NDIS Business Managers across NSW/ACT. The 4 NDIS Business Managers will be responsible for:

  • Newcastle
  • Campbelltown & Wollongong
  • Sydney & Wagga
  • Southern NSW & ACT

We have advertised the new positions of General Manager Programs and the 4 NDIS Business Managers. These positions will be open to both internal and external applicants.

We’ll keep you updated with any other changes.

Update March 2018

You may have heard that One Door is going through a time of change. We want you to know that we continue working to create a world where people living with mental illness are valued and treated as equals.

There have been a lot of changes in the mental health sector since 2016, and we’ve been thinking carefully about how to adapt to these.

The Commonwealth government started reducing funding for their programs in 2016-2017. To date, One Door has invested to maintain our existing, skilled workforce. The funding has been significantly reduced for the 2018-2019 financial year, and will finish completely by 30 June 2019. We’re also operating within the realities of the current NDIS price structure, and the recent recommendations from the Independent Pricing Review.

One Door has started a consultation process with our staff to explore the best way forward. We’re committed to service delivery that ensures quality for our clients, supported by a skilled workforce.

We’ll keep talking with you about any changes that we might make. We believe, as our mission states, that: ‘together, we can change the world’.
