‘Dedication second to none’: Lee Tarlamis MP recognises AGAPI Care in Victorian Parliament




Lee Tarlamis MP acknowledged and thanked AGAPI Care Inc in Victorian Parliament on Wednesday for the critical role it plays in providing support to people with a disability in Victoria.

AGAPI Care is a not-for-profit organisation committed to delivering tailored services and making a difference in the lives of people with disabilities since 1987.

In his speech to Parliament, Mr Tarlamis thanked the organisation and its staff and management team, led by CEO Mary Gakopoulos, for their care, dedication and commitment to supporting these vulnerable Victorians.

“The difference they make to the lives of those they come into contact with cannot, and should not, be underestimated,” Mr Tarlamis said.

“By engaging the way that they do so diligently with their clients, their families and carers to ensure that they are treated equally, with dignity and with respect, AGAPI Care never loses sight of the goal to get the best outcomes for everyone that they provide a service for.”

Mr Tarlamis then thanked AGAPI Care for going “above and beyond” during the COVID-19 pandemic to “meet the increased safeguards and procedures so they can continue to provide much needed support without interruption.”

He also mentioned his recent visit to AGAPI Care’s facility in Preston to attend their annual Radiothon and meet some of the organisation’s volunteers, staff and clients.

“What a truly inspiring group of people they are,” Mr Tarlamis said, while stressing that donations from this year’s Radiothon will go towards renovating AGAPI Care’s new facility in Oakleigh.

Mr Tarlamis concluded his speech by expressing his gratitude to supporters of AGAPI Care who help the organisation “continue to provide their important services that make such a profound difference to the lives of so many.”
