Lived experience? That’s us.

A recent survey of Candella employees has revealed how much lived experience there is amongst our workforce.

-Three quarters (75%) of Candella employees have a lived experience of mental health issues.

-Two thirds (65%) have a lived experience as a carer of a person with mental health issues.

-Half (48%) have a lived experience of disability.

-Notably, a third (30%) have a lived experience of psychosocial disability.

-A third (33%) identified as neurodiverse. A quarter (25%) belong to the LGBTIQA+ communities.

-Dozens of ethnic/racial identities are represented in our workforce.

Collectively, our lived experience gives us a broad range of perspectives to draw on as we go about our work. This makes us better at supporting hundreds of people each day from diverse, marginalised communities throughout Melbourne.
