Good Sammys welcomes the Governor for a tour of the Recycling Centre

Greeted by Mr Trent Bartlett, Board Chair and Mrs Melanie Kiely, Chief Executive Officer of Good Samaritan Enterprises, the Governor was taken on a tour of the organisation’s recycling centre in Canning Vale.

Good Samaritan Enterprises is an agency of the Uniting Church in Australia and was founded in 1958 to provide employment choices for people with disabilities. They are a registered provider of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and have worked with people with disability and their families for over 60 years.

Good Sammys retails recycled goods and clothing through its 29 stores in metropolitan and regional Western Australia creating employment for people with disabilities in the retail stores themselves, and in support roles in donation collections and goods processing.

‘It’s incredibly uplifting to see the meaningful employment opportunities and pathways that Good Sammys offer to people of all abilities and disabilities. I was delighted to meet and speak with the staff that operate the recycling centre and see first hand the difference it makes in peoples lives. You can feel the sense of worth and empowerment the volunteers have working in this safe and welcoming environment.’
