“We needed a young mechanical apprentice and Gillian from 4gr made it happen with the most enthusiasm humanly possible. She navigated, the Gordon, apprentice bodies, funding bodies, software for reading, parents, reading recovery and even taxies. The apprenticeship would never have happened without Gillian and 4gr. I would have given up very early without Gillian and a young man would not have been given an opportunity to flourish.”

TESTIMONIALS

MATTParticipant

I have been working with 4gr for about 4 years. In that time I have had so much support from everyone that has worked with me. I know I would not be in the job I am today without all their knowledge and help. The staff have gone above and beyond what I could have imagined or hoped for. They knew exactly what I needed to get me through my course and into a job that I am enjoying. Everyone made me feel very comfortable, safe and just like part of a big family.
I owe everything to Beth, Fred and Michael who kept me on track and motivated to finish my course and get through my work experience.
I could never have done this alone. I hope that anyone who needs help would contact 4gr and have the same fantastic experience I did.

ANGEParent

Our experience with 4gr has been extremely positive. They assisted our son, Daniel, to identify a career path and obtain a job as an apprentice motor mechanic. Thanks to the ongoing support from 4gr, Daniel has managed to maintain his job, which he loves. They are understanding and responsive in resolving issues that have arisen. 4gr are clearly passionate about what they do. They have enabled Daniel to reach his potential and we couldn’t be more grateful.

JULIEPARENT

My son and I have been involved with Gillian Baldwin and 4gr for many years. Gillian has supported my son through Secondary School and was a great support at Student Support Group Meetings.
Gillian and 4gr also helped my son have work experience and she put an enormous amount of care and effort into matching the appropriate work place to my son's needs.
Gillian has been on a long journey with my son from secondary school to securing him an amazing apprenticeship in which he is thriving.
I have never had any concern for my son being with 4gr or Gillian. In fact the opposite. It has given me great peace of mind to know that 4gr operates at the highest standards for their clients.
My son and I could not have done without her amazing contribution over the past several years. I firmly believe that without Gillian's help my son would not be thriving like he is now!!
I have no hesitation to recommend Gillian Baldwin to anyone who is seeking an educational or career pathway for their child.

BRODYParticpant

I'm thankful for the support and ongoing communication that 4gr have given me in finding and maintaining employment.
I didn't know what role was right for me and 4gr gave me choices and a chance to try new things.
My job has given me an increased self confidence and I'm constantly learning.
The team at Highway Tyres are supportive and a great place to work. Thank you 4gr.

TRACYParent

A massive thankyou to you Carolyn and your team for all the help and support you have given Brody. He is a happy young man working in a job he loves with someone who guides, supports and spends time teaching him, listening to him and giving him responsibilities which develop and enhance his confidence, resilience and self-esteem.
It took a long time and many heartbreaks for Brody to find this satisfaction and its all because of the support, guidance and time you gave him.
We didn't know where else to turn before being introduced to you and it has been the most positive experience. One we are truly grateful for.

ChloeParticipant

NatalieParticipant

I want to personally thank you for supporting me for such a long time. You have been such an integral part of my career journey. You inspired me, challenged me, and kept me on track, and I very much appreciate it. Thank you for helping me realise my purpose, for being an ear when I needed a sounding board, and for believing in me when I didn't believe in myself.

TaniaParent

Our 4gr experience has been fabulous. What it offered Ben that the other services didn’t offer, is that he like a lot of other people with disabilities have had a lot of rejections in their life, and have quite low levels of confidence. Having the support of someone assisting to make the initial contact, and having the ability to actually come along and meet the employers has helped Ben develop his confidence moving forward. In all honesty we’ve never had concerns, it has all been very positive for us.

LorettaParticipant

When I started with 4gr I was working in the supported employment industry (ADE). And all I wanted to do was to find work in the open employment field. I also attended the Work Simulation classes that 4gr run which was to help me understand what I needed to learn while looking for jobs and also career paths and their networks. I spent lots of time working out what was needed and how we would go about doing things. I have now been working in open employment for 2 years and I have a permanent part time role. I am so glad to be earning a proper wage and working with people from all over Geelong and the world and learning about their culture and trying to understand their accents.

Tracey, Indee's MumParent

In the last six months we have seen huge changes. She gets up and at it in the morning and is happy to be going in, no lethargy that she used to have. She wants to present herself better—no tracksuit pants, likes to
dress herself nicely, is more aware of her appearance and more aware of respect and work boundaries. She is fully aware that this is a working environment and that there are hierarchies and needs to be respectful. She has changed hugely since commencing with 4gr, and it has been really good for her and she now has a good attitude.

Elena, Matt's MumParent

Tilley has spent an enormous amount of time working with Matt, not just interview skills but in terms of what he likes to do, what he wants to do, what is easy for him, what is hard for him. When I listened to their meetings over Covid
times on Zoom and listened to the way Tilley spoke with Matt it was excellent.

BB's Doggy Day CareEmployer

4gr has been fantastic in supplying support to our staff involved in their program. From providing an employment mentor to assisting with communication skills and understanding company policies and procedures,
they have been able to help our staff members each step of the way. The support of 4gr has allowed us as a company to provide employment to diverse staff, knowing that we have their assistance in the challenging
transition of entering the employment field.

Calco Trusses and TimberEmployer

We started working with 4gr when we were looking for someone to complete a few small jobs around our timber yard. Arthur completed his work placement with us, and we quickly found that his enthusiasm for the role would lead to meaningful ongoing employment. Over the time that Arthur has been employed with us his role has grown and developed along with him. Through ongoing support and communication between 4gr and management, Arthur receives regular employment mentoring
to ensure he is thriving in the workplace.

Tania, Ben's MumParent

Once Ben started working with 4gr we actually could not believe the difference in Ben’s confidence. I think being able to go into the workforce, being included in the working unit, he did years of volunteering before he gained paid employment, but just that sense of worth that someone is willing to pay him for his time and knowledge has actually been quite life changing. Every family member has commented and said he seems so much happier, confident and organised, it has been life changing. He was recently included in a team photo at his place of employment and he was very chuffed that they included him.
