Goodbye Alex: After only 18 months with Currajong Disability Services (CDS) Alex Lee has become a favourite among clients and staff, not just because she is good at what she does but because she is passionate about her job, workmates and participants. Sadly, she finished on Wednesday planning to move back to Newcastle. “I will miss everyone – especially the clients at the houses.” Alex spent most of her time in Cecile Street. “CDS is brilliant and I would recommend it to anyone looking for work in the disability sector,” said Alex.
