Community services organisation Chorus has merged with disability services provider Kira, bolstering Chorus’s staff numbers and expanding its geographical reach.
The move means Chorus has an additional 60 staff and 70 clients.
“We are looking to grow our impact, we are looking to grow geographically, so this is in the northern suburbs, we are stronger in the southern suburbs,” Mr Minchin told Business News.
“It’s just part of our strategy to have a good across metropolitan Perth as well as Albany and Bunbury.
“We saw lots of similarities in the values, the customer base, the way the Kira customers were supported.”
He said mergers were becoming more common as the sector transitioned to the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
“We were extremely impressed by the Chorus board’s collaborative and professional approach to the merger, and by the organisation’s vision of enabling people to live the life they choose.”
