Description of charity's activities and outcomes
Katia Project Inc provides paid employment and training opportunities in the Byron Shire for people with a disability who require training and support to work. Our person-centred approach ensures that our workers are in the centre of service design, planning, delivery and review. This enables them to shape and direct service and support arrangements to suit their strengths, needs and goals, with the support of their family, friends, carers and advocates. It allows them to have and maintain control of the decision-making, planning and sustainable development of their own business in an environment that encourages skill development, independence, dignity, teamwork, continuous improvement and the production of a quality product.Our primary business is the environmentally best practice production and profitable sales of high quality herbs to the horticulture and retail markets. We expect to improve our profitability by increasing our market share, adopting more efficient practices and upgrading our facilities.We are also committed to exploring creative business options and partnerships in horticultural related products, training and tourism areas that will complement our current product line, improve participation, business viability and profitability, and that are a good fit with our employees, site, values and community.We are equally committed to the physical, mental and spiritual health of our employees, customers and the community. To this end we seek to provide a place of business that is accessible, respectful and inclusive, provides challenges, rewards accomplishments, promotes learning, and encourages contributions to the business, industry and community.
