Our Stories
2022 in Reflection

We have many stories to share but for this year we are focussing on stories that illustrate the “meaning of impact”. 

Our Leaders’ Messages

Tim McDonald

It is a great pleasure for me to welcome you to our 2022 Annual Report which covers the financial year of 2021 – 2022, a year that saw us reflect on where we are going, resulting in the development and the launch of our Growth for Impact Strategy. 

Through the annual report we will share the stories that illustrate the meaning of impact.  If you have a positive impact on just one person, the impact on that person is immense and what it means to them can often be indescribable.  Here at The Y WA we strive to make that impact on not just one but many.

I hope you enjoy the glimpse into our work and impact this year that this report offers. I look forward to reporting on our Growth for Impact strategy development and impact next year and sharing with you the stories of our work
