I always had an interest in healthcare and hospitality to help and serve people. I am very honoured to work for Better Together, because I have the opportunity to get to know wonderful, kind people with disabilities and they make me laugh and are such heart-warming people. I really enjoy working in the café because we work together as a team and it matters really much to me that I work with the best manager I have known.

Lagoon Creek is a great place to work. I don’t feel like I’m going to work - it’s where I go to be with friends.

Pootie is a 5 year old Toy Poodle, she has been working at Lagoon Creek Café for the past 18 months on a part time basis. She assists with customer service, de-stressing people with anxiety, helping people communicate on different levels but mostly she enjoys just being around people, sharing the love.

While working Pootie has enjoyed podium seating beside Politicians, hair styling on site and almost Rockstar status, she still loves rolling around on the grass just as much. Pootie is a very valued staff member.

 

John

Supportive Supervisor, Coffee Connoisseur

I have worked in the café since it opened in 2011. I first started working for the Caboolture Community work co-operative mowing lawns and cleaning business offices. My life has changed from living rough, to living in my own private rental, where I enjoy privacy and a peaceful life. Working in the café has given me a feeling of real purpose in life and confidence to enjoy life on my own terms. I often get asked to do public speaking, and I really enjoy it.

I really enjoy working in the café, I get to know all of the customers on a first name basis because they keep coming back. They enjoy the good food and good service, and they tell me how good I am at my job. We work very hard in the café and function room, we love what we do and we have fun working together as a team.

I am often invited to speak publicly, and I really enjoy it. My story might help others understand just how important having a job is. And I always give Lagoon creek café and function room a plug.
