At Midway, we structure our organisation to ensure that the people we support are at the forefront of everything that we do.
The People We Support
Our actions are determined by your needs and wants. As often as possible and as much as you want to, we work on a “Shared Management” basis to ensure people are always at the center and the origin of the creation, designing and implementation of the services.
For that we always make sure the following principles are respected:
Independent Living – the right to be a citizen with full access to an ordinary life
Self Determination – The right to be in control of your own life and be acknowledged as the expert in ‘you’ and for your views and preferences to be acknowledged and reflected in your support arrangement
Flexibility – the right to decide how to use your resources and how they will be managed to best suit you and your lifestyle
Choice – the right to choose how much responsibility you have within a Shared Management arrangement based on your choice, preference and ability
Mutual Agreement – the right to be treated fairly and honestly in how agreement is reached
Trust – the right to be trusted as an equal partner in the Shared Management arrangement regardless of level of responsibility chosen
After you and your family, Support Workers are the most important piece of foundation for our structure.
They are the ones that are available everyday for to support you in your journey to independent living and skills development step after step.
They are the ones who make Midway’s vision come to life by empowering people living fulfilled lives day after day and truly opening the path for inclusion through the positive image they reflect in the community with their professionalism and dedication, during everyday community participation activities and movements.
Managers & Team Leaders
Managers and Team Leaders play an important role in this organisation, as they are accountable for both you and Support Staff fulfilment and development. If Support Workers were not valued and supported themselves they would not be in the best position to support and care about someone else.
Finally without our Executive Team it would be difficult to ensure that the operations and relationships between all the different stakeholders are going according to our plan (as a matter of fact, according to the Strategic Plan) and that no new opportunity for people, including staff, to live more independent, fulfilled lives is missed.
Additionally the Executive Team as a role of compliance and ensure the respect to the highest standards in a continuous improvement objective.
