About Holy Oake
Holyoake, the Australian Institute for Alcohol and Drug Addiction Resolutions. Currently we have 55 staff dedicated to delivering counselling services to around 2000 clients per year and includes the corporate and social enterprise staff.
Whilst the number of clients is growing steadily, our programs are becoming more intense and the number of contacts per year is increasing dramatically. On average we see our clients around 6 to 8 times and we aim to increase this. The proposed refit of these offices will allow us to have more flexibility in the delivery of these services for groups and individuals and aims to enhance the client experience with flow on positive impacts to their programs. By creating a welcoming environment and providing contemporary counselling and group environments we will increase retention and attendance rates resulting in more effective programs and better outcomes.
About the project
We need to be able to compete this project at the best possible price, ensuring that we maximise funding from Lotterywest as Holyoake is not in a position of self-fund the refit. The major refit will also require that services be brought up to code including the lift, fire systems and potentially windows.
