Nominate your support worker

The WA Disability Support Awards recognise and reward excellence by people who provide support to the highest standard to increase the quality of life and inclusion for people with disability. The Awards showcase the disability sector as a place of innovation, a place for employment and a place to have a career.

The categories are:

  • Excellence in Personal and Community Support Award
  • Excellence in Improving Participation Award
  • Excellence in Leadership Award
  • Excellence in Improving Employment Opportunities Award
  • Excellence in Regional Support Award
  • Excellence in Advocacy and Rights Promotion Award

This year we have a new award category for demonstrating outstanding achievement in disability support. The seventh category cannot be nominated for, with the Overall Award for Excellence winner being drawn from the winners of the other six categories.

If you would like to nominate your support worker or team of support workers, download the nomination form and guidelines are available from www.dswa.org.au

We encourage people with disability and families to nominate your stars. Nomination workshops are being held in February to assist you in writing your nomination. Please contact Jenny Gleeson on 08 9208 9857 or awards@nds.org.au for further support.

Nominations close Friday 24 February 2017. The Awards will be presented at a gala dinner on Saturday 29 April 2017 at Crown Perth.
