Founded last year, the Ballarat Clean Team consists of a group who access Scope Lifestyle Options in Ballarat. They found employment with Headspace to clean their offices each Tuesday night.

Their duties include vacuuming, dusting, mopping, cleaning toilets, emptying bins and wiping down tables and desks.

Along the way they have developed new skills and showcased an excellent work ethic.

In March this year the team appeared on Ballarat WIN news promoting Scope to the broader community – this highlighted the benefits of employing people with a disability and proved, given the right opportunities, they can become valued members of the workforce.
