In the dynamic world of disability support services, one woman’s journey shines brightly as a testament to the power of passion, determination, and collaboration. Meet Grace Eu, the General Manager of Sahara Services Australia, whose unwavering dedication has touched the lives of countless individuals and families, making a remarkable impact on her community.

Grace’s path took an unexpected turn when a life-changing moment ignited her desire to create a meaningful impact. Immersing herself in the disability sector as a support worker, she found fulfilment in helping others and quickly rose through the ranks, becoming a Team Leader, Manager, and eventually, General Manager at Sahara Services.

What truly captivated Grace about her work was the diverse and collaborative team she led. Sahara Services fostered an environment where everyone’s voice mattered, encouraging the exchange of innovative ideas to improve service delivery continually.

“As Ken Blanchard wisely said, ‘Feedback is the breakfast of champions,'” Grace explains, emphasising the importance of open dialogue and growth.

The organisation’s focus extended beyond offering support; it aimed to create a space where clients could flourish and experience life to the fullest. “In diversity there is beauty and there is strength,” Grace echoes Maya Angelou, emphasising the power of inclusivity in their approach.

Transparency and accountability were fundamental to Sahara Services’ operations. The team worked authentically and passionately, making a tangible difference in the lives of their clients. Grace beamed with pride as she spoke of her dedicated team, who consistently went above and beyond to ensure their clients had the resources and support needed to thrive.

At Sahara Services, events were not just gatherings; they were celebrations of unity and inclusivity. Grace ensured that clients and team members came together as one big family, erasing any barriers that might exist between them. “We are all Sahara Services,” she says with a warm smile, epitomising the sense of belonging within the community.

Grace’s journey at Sahara Services demonstrates that collaboration and open dialogue are the cornerstones of a strong and supportive community.
