PACE Care and business advisory firm, One Direct Advisory have developed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to further collaborate on opportunities for supporting community and care organisations across New South Wales.
PACE Care and One Direct Advisory (ODA) will offer expanded knowledge and improved services to ensure that they can increase their support of independent and straining organisations in the sector.
The companies say the MOU was agreed to further strengthen PACE’s shared services model that is underpinned by offering organisations ‘value through collaboration’.
“The MOU with One Direct Advisory is an exciting commitment to ensure PACE Care can continue to offer a holistic approach to its members, where community and aged care organisations can leverage on sharing resources, training, administration and finance support”, said PACE General Manager, Greg Worrall.
“We understand that each organisation is unique and the service and support we provide needs to follow accordingly. One Direct Advisory has an excellent reputation for providing quality advisory services that will complement our current administration and finance-focused offering,” he continued.
PACE Care and ODA have enjoyed a close relationship for many years, working in the same sector and having complementary services and this MOU will now see the organisations share a willingness to cooperate and expand.
ODA’s Principal Advisor, Ron Thomsen said that the timing of this agreement is significant as service providers plan to emerge from lockdown and grapple the impact of operating during the pandemic.
“COVID-19 has impacted every sector in many ways, and we consider this MOU a great opportunity to create an offering that provides the extensive scope of support services to independents,” said Mr Thomsen.
“By working together, the multidisciplinary skills of ODA combined with PACE Care’s specialisation in accounting, payroll and administration, represents a well-balanced team to address all business needs, enabling members to survive in a challenging sector,” he added.
In 2022 as part of this MOU, PACE Care and ODA plan to visit regional areas of New South Wales to promote collaborative initiatives and explore opportunities for independent and not-for-profits to benefit from the PACE Care network and its combined services model.
