Welcome to Footprints!

Footprints 30 Year Anniversary

2021 marks the 30 Year Anniversary of Footprints. We are very pleased to be celebrating this milestone and value all who are sharing this special year with us, whether you have been with us for a short time or a long time.

An organisation such as ours, does not have the longevity and success that we have experienced without certain qualities. This year we will showcase these qualities through the eyes of our most valuable members — our clients, staff and volunteers as we tell their stories. These stories will highlight the relationships that form the foundations of Footprints. We hope you enjoy them as they are unveiled throughout 2021 and we hope they shine a light on the valuable contribution Footprints makes to the community.

Our first story showcases the quality “RESPECTFUL” and it is told through the experiences of Michelle who is pictured with her Footprints worker, CeeJay.

WE HOPE YOU ENJOY READING THIS STORY

 


 

Program updates and information on COVID-19

Coronavirus update: January 2021

In light of the recent Health Alerts issued by the Queensland Chief Health Officer, Footprints is taking all necessary precautionary measures to ensure the safety and wellbeing of its clients, staff, and the community. We are making short-term changes to some of our services to ensure all our program participants are at the least possible risk and that all staff members are complying with Government Directives and correct infection prevention procedures. Due to COVID-19 and the health impact this pandemic has caused, Footprints offices are closed to the general public but we are contactable via phone and email should you have any questions relating to your services. Please contact us on 3252 3488 or admin@footprintsinc.org.au.
