BAIL's Tales: December

Kia ora from the BAIL team

Happy Birthday to us! Yes we have reached the incredible milestone of 10 years. After our first decade we can say the Burwood Academy of Independent Living is strong, vibrant, still growing and making a real difference in disability, rehabilitation and independent living research.

The last 10 years have seen many milestones and we celebrated it like we do with most things at BAIL, with cake.

Kia ora from the expanding BAIL Team,

This month we warmly welcomed Jenny Freeman (no relation to Claire) to our team. Jenny began her part time roll last month and comes with accounting skills to support Brian in the BAIL office. Managing the financial accounting around the many and varied research projects we have at any one time requires specialised expertise and as we grow and expand, extra back office support will help keep the BAIL machine rolling.
