PeopleKind in Cahoots to Build Shared Capacity

May 28, 2024

Western Australian human services organisation PeopleKind Group is joining forces with Cahoots. 

Under the arrangement Cahoots will become a separate entity within the PeopleKind structure, retaining its own brand, culture, and executive leadership and staff. 

PeopleKind Group already has a diverse portfolio as a parent company to Nulsen Disability Services, allied health provider Superyou, housing provider Nesti, justice support service Outcare, NDIS plan coordinator Pillar, Melior focussing on behavioural support and Liift training.  

Cahoots, the trading name for Kids Camps Inc, has built a powerful reputation since its establishment in 1981 through providing camps and inclusive community programs for young West Australians living with disability.   

PeopleKind Group Chief Executive Gordon Trewern said the arrangement was a win / win for both organisations by further diversifying the PeopleKind offering, while enabling and enhancing the opportunity for Cahoots to grow. 

 

“Through its decades providing supportive and fun camps for Western Australian children and youth, Cahoots is well known and well respected. The organisation is a good fit with our own established services such as Nulsen and Outcare which are established leaders in the areas which they operate,” Mr Trewern said. 

“The Cahoots Board have recognised that our scale, combined with our values and track record, has the clear potential to provide Cahoots the organisational support to grow while remaining authentic to the vision that underpinned its creation,” Mr Trewern said. 

Cahoots Chief Executive Officer David Armstrong said that joining PeopleKind is the result of looking at where we are now and the best way for us to grow to support our families and staff. 

“PeopleKind Group was the best fit, “ Mr Armstrong added. 

Cahoots’ transition into PeopleKind Group will take place from 1 July 2024.

Help us, help others

No matter how small, your contribution goes towards helping Cahoots lower the costs for families using our services. Whilst we are NDIS funded, there is often a shortfall between the funding and the cost of our activities, so your donations mean families can still send their loved ones to our camps and programs.

For many, Cahoots is a life changing experience for both the participants who grow, learn and enjoy themselves, but it also provides respite to parents and families from the demands of full time care. Anything you can spare is greatly appreciated.
