After many months of hard work, negotiations and planning, we are pleased to announce that we, MiLife-Victoria, are now the official owner of a Seaford hairdressing business, Designs for Hair located at 2 Ti-Tree Crescent Seaford, 03 9786 9308.
This purchase is the start of our longer-term strategy to provide MiLife-Victoria clients meaningful and accessible work experience opportunities. When combined with our longstanding and very popular Adult and Community Further Education courses, we can add the salon as another workplace that will support people with a disability to gain the necessary skills and experience required, to go on to further education and study or enter the workforce.
The purchase of a commercial enterprise that has been operating for more than 30 years is also an opportunity to diversify the organisations income and assists to safeguard our financial viability in the short to medium term.
Although we’re not planning on combining client activities with the salon until next year, we do encourage staff, clients and their families to consider Designs For Hair as an option for all the family’s current and future hair care needs. Further information will be sent out in the coming weeks regarding special pricing and discounts for MiLife-Victoria clients, families, staff and other key stakeholders.
