Why WestWood Spice?
WestWood Spice is serious about results. Achieving excellence for our clients and strengthening the impact they have, is our reason for being.
We do not settle for doing things the same old way. Learning alongside our clients, we identify what is working well, what needs work, and together, identify new, innovative ideas.
As recognised thought leaders, we empower our clients to be agile, keeping abreast of emerging social issues and adaptive to the ever-changing NGO landscape.
What makes our team of professionals so effective is we that we have all experienced first-hand our clients’ worlds. Our ongoing commitment to the sector means we bring true passion, genuine interest and a generosity of ideas, making collaboration more meaningful.
Since 2001, WestWood Spice has grown in reputation and expertise, honing its service offering through the over 500 consulting projects we have delivered for our clients.
Each project we undertake is new, different, and exciting. It can range across strategic and business planning, leadership development, program evaluation, service review, consultation and training, to mention just a few.
Since 2006 we have been operating the National Relay Service (NRS) Outreach program. This major project, under contract to the Australian Government, reaches and builds relationships with a diverse range of individuals, communities and health professionals. It enables people who are deaf or have a hearing or speech impairment, to make phone calls through a variety of telecommunication devices.
WestWood Spice acknowledges the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Australians and the Traditional Custodians of the states and territories of Australia. We pay our respects to elders past, present and future and acknowledge their living culture and their unique role in the life of the Australian nation.
Our vision for reconciliation is: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are empowered and outcomes for their communities are improved and supported by committed organisations and individuals.
To support this vision and renew our commitment to reconciliation, WestWood Spice has developed an “Innovate” Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).
