Sunshine Butterflies launch new Employment Initiative for individuals living with disability


Sunshine Butterflies disability support service and charity has partnered with local company John Madill Toyota to launch their newest supported employment initiative where members will work in the charity's newest endeavour, indoor plant hire.

Sunshine Butterflies, situated in the Noosa countryside, aims to reduce the stigma of disability in the community and provide families and individuals with the tools and resources to live a happy and fulfilled life.

Sunshine Butterflies new supported employment Initiative offers opportunities for individuals living with disability to work in the local community, develop small business skills and gain independence and confidence in the workforce.

Members in supported employment work in gardening, maintenance, and lawn care and now in the indoor plant hire.

Sunshine Butterflies horticulturist Damien Walsh said: “We were excited to partner with John Madill Toyota to launch our indoor plant hire. John Madill Toyota are celebrating National Tree Day at the end of July with a school planting event at Noosaville State School. To bring attention to this event, we proudly partnered with them to showcase our beautiful indoor plants within their showroom and reception area."

Supported employment members joined Damien and Sunshine Butterflies staff members to transport and set up the plants at John Madill Toyota.

“The team at John Madill Toyota loved the atmosphere these new plants created in their space," Damien said. "Our members in supported employment will be tending to these plants over the next month.”

When you head into John Madill this July you will see the beautiful plants on display thanks to Sunshine Butterflies indoor plant hire.
