A Message From Our CEO

Coastlink CEO, John Davis

Hi everyone,

It's been a busy few months in our organisation, and I'm pleased to be able to share a few highlights here with you.

One significant event was the ceremony we recently held to officially rename Coastlink Lodge to 'Roberts Lodge' in honour of our dedicated outgoing Board Member, Helen Roberts.

People like Helen are the lifeblood of our organisation, and it’s only through this kind of commitment and vision that we’re able to achieve our purpose: assisting individuals living with disability to live lives of choice, inclusion and opportunity.

Each and every day, our Board, Senior Management Team and staff members work together to ensure we can maintain our reputation as the Central Coast’s most trusted disability and aged care provider.

On behalf of every member of the Coastlink community, I thank Helen for all she has done to grow and strengthen our organisation.

I was also happy to announce our partnership with the team at the Conservatorium of Music, who are now offering on-site music therapy sessions from a new purpose-built studio in Gosford.

We're keen to support any interested Coastlinkers who would like to attend these sessions, and as the Conservatorium is a registered NDIS provider, NDIS funding can be used. 

You can find out more information about the program on The Con's website.

Living your way,
John Davis

CEO, Coastlink
