We give people a comfort zone. They feel comfortable to share and have a feeling of hope that we will help them in any way we can.”

25 Years of Welcome – QPASTT’s Support Services Team
As part of our 25 year celebrations, we’re sharing the reflections of our Support Services team. They are the first point of welcome for our clients, stakeholders and staff. They are highly skilled, demonstrating the power of presence and kindness each day and creating a safe space to hold people in moments of great pain and distress.
While their stories share their thoughts on what it takes to cultivate this daily practice of kindness, care and dignity for people who have endured so much, their common reflection is of how supporting refugee survivors at QPASTT has been a consistent source of personal and professional growth that continues to deepen their own empathy and compassion.
