Southern Cross Support Services has celebrated its 10 year anniversary with the official opening of its new building called The Network.
The space is situated in Bolewski Street and once housed Aldi Supermarket.
The Network features offices for a range of service providers plus a crib area that provides clients with a space to relax and unwind.
Southern Cross Support Services CEO Cheryl Barrett said The Network development was another way the team was building on its commitment to the community since the business was established a decade ago.
“It has been a wonderful journey over the past ten years,” she said.
“Now to be in The Network, where we have a crib area for our clients and a space that is modern and has everything that we need for our employees, is wonderful for a regional area.
“I think disability support services are important in any region, whether you are rural, whether you are regional or whether you are in a metropolitan area.
“Certainly we need to have these services right here at our doorstep for the clients that really need us.”
SCSS was established in the region in 2011 by Greg and Karen Gaston.
Since then, it has expanded to not only operate from Bundaberg, but to employ more than 100 staff across the state and beyond.
Bundaberg local and SCSS client Terry Warden said he loved being part of a company which looked after him.
“They are a good company because they help people out always,” he said.
“They do good things like the farm animals and I want to say a big thank you because they are the best company.”
