We were thrilled to celebrate our 25th Birthday last month, bringing together clients, staff, stakeholders and other members of our Nexus community for a big celebration at Wrest Point.

“It’s great to have been able to take this opportunity to celebrate how we have grown to support so many more people to live independent lives over the years and to recognise the vital role our hard working staff play in making this happen – many of whom have been with us for a long time,” said Adrian Scott, our Chief Operating Officer.

One staff member recognised this year for 25 years at Nexus was Team Leader Lynne Triffitt who has been with Nexus since it began.

“I was with Southern Residential when they merged with Tagari Lia to become Nexus over 25 years ago – in fact some of the clients I started with are still at Nexus today!” Lynne said.

“Nexus has always been a champion of positive change over the years – not just for clients but for staff as well. Processes have had to change, particularly with the NDIS coming in, but these have always benefitted staff and clients in the long run,” she said.

“I’m very proud to have worked for so long at Nexus – it’s a rare thing these days to want to stay with an employer for so long,” Lynne said.
