A well-known Bridgetown volunteer and community member who lives with Down Syndrome, has been offered a permanent position with the Community Resource Centre after completing Workability Day with Forrest Personnel last year.

Tenille Einsaar was offered a trial run for the role of the cleaner at the centre in December, after working hard towards her goal of getting a job with support workers and members of the Forrest Personnel and Cam Can teams.

Not long after she was officially offered the role.

Cam Can Lower South West service co-ordinator Nat Taylor said having a job was a significant part of life for anyone.

“Tenille has great pride in her position and being part of the CRC family,” she said. “Her job has increased her connection to her community and truly enriched her life.”

Bridgetown Community Resource Manager John Nicholas said he and the management committee were delighted to be able to offer Tenille the position.

“She has performed to a high standard since her appointment,” he said.

Forrest Personnel’s Lindell Verelst said she, like many others, were incredibly proud of Tenille’s commitment and effort. “We are so excited she has been given an opportunity to receive a paying role that she deserves,” she said.
