15 years ago, Michael’s life changed for the better when he moved into one of our supported living arrangements on the Sunshine Coast. As someone with an intellectual disability, he needs support with daily tasks and enjoys learning new skills at his local Learning and Lifestyle centre.
His mum, Jenny, is one of our most dedicated supporters and she told us why she is going to include Endeavour Foundation in her Will.
“I’m very passionate about Endeavour Foundation. They rely on public support to maintain these services. And they need your financial help and mine.
The great thing is that Michael is treated with respect as an individual in the community. I know that if he’s with Endeavour, all his needs are looked after. They give him the most normal rounded life possible with the security of a place that he calls his home.
My son’s welfare and future is my biggest concern. Without Endeavour, life would be very precarious. I hate to think what life would be like… I can’t bear to think about it.
There are very few other places like this. They’re such a professional body and the best provider of care for people with intellectual disability. Any money invested in Endeavour is well spent. You know it’s going to be used wisely.
By including Endeavour Foundation in my Will, I’m making sure that they will always be able to look after Michael, and I’m helping to guarantee the secure future of more than half a million people with intellectual disability who live in our communities.”
