My husband and two colleagues were injured in the same workplace accident, one fatally. My husband has never been the same since. While we found the workers compensation insurer to be a hindrance rather than helpful, the guys at CCW were unbelievable. They spent time with my husband working patiently with him. I remember at the time thinking "what's in it for them (CCW)?" I soon came to the understanding that they simply cared about my family.

I would like to record my gratitude for the support that CCW and in particular, Dick Garrety gave me through a very dark time in my life.

My life was gradually spiralling out of control over a five-year period, due to family loss/tragedy.

I am writing to thank you personally, and your entire team at CCW, for the complete and practical support you have given me. Jason without sounding too mushy (mushy I am not) your style of counselling and practical help has been more valuable to me than any of the professionals in the mental health crisis team - in fact I don't think they helped me at all, they seemed to disagree with each other more than anything and just made me more confused.

A number of ATC workers were involved in a workplace accident that resulted in a fatality on the UC Hospital construction site. I was amazed at the level of support and willingness to assist CCW provided to myself and the workers on-site. The majority of workers on-site were quite young and were impacted greatly by the accident. CCW contacted each worker and arranged counselling for those wanting it.

The issues the workers have is none of my business, I only need to know they are getting the care they need. Many workers have expressed to me on a number of occasions that they feel comfortable talking to CCW about their problems as they don't feel judged and the CCW worker is understanding of their situation.

I remember a day I was working on-site and a CCW staff member came up to me for a chat and to see if I was ok. They said I wasn't looking great and offered for me to go and talk to a counsellor. I was dealing with a personal tragedy that had happened in my life at the time so I went to the counsellor a number of times and it made a huge difference to my life then and still to this day. I owe CCW a big thank you. I wasn't aware how much I was really struggling at the time and it took a person like him, who cares, to link me up to the support I needed.
