Australian Disability Enterprise Awards Open
Wednesday, 22nd June 2011 at 3:54 pm

Nominations are open for the 2011 Australian Disability Enterprise (ADE) Excellence Award, which aims to recognise the work enterprises do in providing jobs for people with a disability.

The Parliamentary Secretary for Disabilities and Carers, Senator Jan McLucas, has called for nominations from the sector, which employs 20,000 people with disability nationwide.

The award aim to recognise the nation’s 202 disability enterprises for the work they do in providing meaningful work for people with disability who need substantial ongoing support to maintain their employment.

Senator McLucas says the ADE Excellence Award, now in its fourth year, encourages and promotes the significant contribution that these enterprises make in improving the lives of people with disability.

She says a job provides more than just a pay packet – it gives dignity and purpose, provides security for the future and connects people to their community.

McLucas called on people to nominate disability enterprises for the award which provide meaningful employment opportunities and support to people with disability, who otherwise may not have had the opportunity, in a professional and supportive environment.

This year the ADE Excellence Award will acknowledge organisations providing best practice and innovative training opportunities, achieving strong wage outcomes, providing safe working conditions, social inclusion and participation for their employees and quality of service to people with disability.

Nominations for this year's ADE Excellence Award close on 31 July. To nominate, visit www.fahcsia.gov.au.

The winners will be announced on 5 September.
