  • Jan Kruger

    Jan Kruger

    Jan believes relationships are at the heart of all things in life. This is why Jan and her husband intentionally invited friends and family to form a Circle of Support for their son Jack. Jack’s current Circle of Support has been in place for five years.

    Jan will share her family’s experience of establishing a Circle of Support. She will explain how Jack’s current Circle of Support has led to a variety of employment opportunities. Jan will not only share the successes of the Circle of Support but also what didn’t work.

    Jan is the Executive Director of Imagine More, a family-led organisation based in Canberra. We believe in a community where everyone is included, valued and contributing in meaningful roles.
