Finding Possible Business in Transformation Artwork

Cara, one of South Australia’s leading disability service providers, has undergone a dramatic business transformation to improve performance and meet the needs of its stakeholders.

On September 18 and 19, Cara is presenting Finding Possible: Business in Transformation, a two-day conference to engage, educate, challenge and inspire business leaders at the Adelaide Convention Centre. 

Learn from the experience of high-calibre speakers and be ready to embrace the transformation necessary for success in an era of change. With key speakers including Holly Ransom, CEO of Emergent and Alan Kohler, publisher, editor and owner of The Constant Investor, this conference is an opportunity to be connected, inspired and ready for change.

Cara’s transformational experience over the past three years has left a deep impression on its leadership, staff and stakeholders. It’s a transformation which has taken place by listening to the experience of people outside the sector. Finding Possible: Business in Transformation is designed to share that experience with others.

Flashback to Cara's Sunday Picnic

16/08/2016

We love getting our Cara Community together for the annual Cara Sunday Picnic. We hold it every year, just before Easter, and it's all about fun, food and friends.

But rather than tell you about it, we'd rather show you!

Vote for Cara's short film I am Liam!

28/07/2016

For the second year in a row, Cara has entered the Focus on Ability Short Film Festival (Open Entrants – Documentary).  

This year’s entry is I am Liam and it tells the story of Liam Goldfinch, one of our campers with a disability who has made the transition to a Cara volunteer!  

Liam is such a star, he’s a natural in front of the camera and we at Cara are so grateful for his willingness to give back to the Camps program as a volunteer!  

Click here to watch I am Liam and vote

Please watch, share, vote and encourage others to vote!

Voting closes on August 8.

Voting doesn’t require any registration, it’s just your name, email address, suburb and postcode. Once you've voted, check your email for a message from "Nova Website" and click on the link they send you to confirm your vote!

Thanks for supporting our film and our Possible People like Liam!

 

Quiet Hour trial with Frewville Foodland

19/07/2016

Frewville Foodland

Cara is proud to partner with Adelaide's Finest Supermarkets, Frewville Foodland, for a month of Quiet Hour sensory-friendly shopping experiences.

Started by Cara, Quiet Hour is an Australian-first which recognises that the "regular" shopping experience can be too overwhelming for people with sensory overload. Not uncommon for people with autism, sensory overload is when everyday things like lights, music, sounds or smells can become overwhelming.

Cara is supporting Frewville Foodland to host a month of Quiet Hours on Tuesdays from 6.30pm to 7.30pm, held on:

July 12

July 19

July 26

August 2

Everyone is welcome to shop at that time and experience the different shopping experience which is Quiet Hour.

The lights will be dimmed, "beep" volume on the checkouts turned down, music and pages messages turned off, shelf restocking paused and smells minimised where possible.

Foodland staff have received training from Cara about sensory overload and they are very supportive.

If Quiet Hour would work for you or your loved ones, please come and shop! If you can't make it but you'd like to offer feedback about other times/locations, please email feedback@cara.org.au
