"Now - I Have A Weekend"

The Wounded Heroes Skilling Queenslanders For Work


June 2023.

We asked Bailey, “What is the best thing about the Business For Heroes program” he is currently attending? 

Without hesitation, he replied: “I now get to have a weekend”.

Bailey told us before the program, each day just merged into the next, there was very little happening and “every day was like a weekend day.”

The Business For Heroes program at The Wounded Heroes Centre in Ipswich is a Queensland Government initiative – Skilling Queenslanders For Work. The program gives Bailey a chance to put into practice the newfound skills he has gained through his work placement. Work placement at the centre involves:

– Meeting and interacting with customers, co-workers and volunteers.

– Working in a team environment.

– Unloading and sorting incoming donations, and Various other customer-focused tasks.

Sue is the local program coordinator. She recognises the program’s value by giving Queenslanders from all walks of life the opportunity to get into work, or back to work. At the same time, the program leads to a BSB10120 – Certificate I in Workplace Skills.

The Ipswich Centre values the helping hand the students provide. They assist with all the tasks associated with continually raising funds to support Australia’s Wounded Heroes – allowing the staff to achieve more and help more lives.  

Bailey and his colleagues will complete their 20-week program very soon. In conjunction with the team at the Wounded Heroes – we welcome and invite anyone wishing to show their support for this group of people. A Graduation Ceremony will be held at the Wounded Heroes Centre in Ipswich on 14th July starting at 09:30 am.
