From the Chair

 I have enjoyed sharing another busy year of successes and lessons with SSI. We extended and deepened our work with our clients and communities. We invested in the organisation to ensure its strength as a well-governed, leading contributor to our sector and society. As always, we remained mindful of the important role our partners played in delivering high quality services.

From the CEO

When I reflect on the year that has passed, the things of which I am most proud are those where our values shine through, whether it is embracing diversity in all forms through the development of our Reconciliation Action Plan, demonstrating our commitment to ethics through a non-predatory merger, or progressing social justice issues to improve the lives of the communities we serve
