Call for Victorian Disability Sector Award Nominees
Tuesday, 28th January 2014 at 9:17 am

Nominations are open for the 2014 Victorian Disability Sector Awards – which recognise and honour individuals, businesses and organisations that are making a difference to the lives of Victorians with disability.

Minister for Disability Services and Reform Mary Wooldridge said Victoria continued to be a leader in disability, with individuals, businesses and the disability sector partnering the Victorian Government to introduce key reforms, such as the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

“Thanks to the contribution of many Victorians, the NDIS is now delivering more choice and control for people with disability as a part of the trial in the Barwon area,” Wooldridge said.

“It’s especially important that we acknowledge the contribution of individuals and organisations across the state that have chosen to work on improving the lives of people with disability, whether that be in a voluntary or professional capacity.”

Wooldridge said judges of the 2014 awards would be looking for entries that demonstrated innovative and creative thinking.

“We encourage nominations about people who are having a positive impact by ‘thinking outside the box’,” Wooldridge said.

Previous award winners include a volunteer who created a social media space for people with disability and a disability support worker who helped individuals to review their exercise programs and achieve their fitness goals.

The 2014 Victorian Disability Sector Awards are a partnership between National Disability Services and the Victorian Government.

Nominations for the 2014 Victorian Disability Sector Awards close on March 7. To nominate visit www.dhs.vic.gov.au/disabilitysectorawards
