National Disability Awards Ceremony

National Disability Awards 2023
Location: Melbourne
Date: 11/12/2023

The National Disability Awards recognise and promote the outstanding contributions of individuals, groups and organisations who are working to create an inclusive Australia where people with disability are valued, respected and can contribute to the community.

A new initiative of NDS, the Awards aim to promote high-quality and sustainable disability services. They will contribute to sector development through recognising and profiling contemporary, evidence-based services and supports, in particular, individualised and person-centred practice committed to quality and safeguarding. Importantly, the Awards will celebrate the achievements of disability service providers and their staff who demonstrate excellence, passion, vision and commitment to supporting people with disability. Through showcasing the disability services sector in the community we will have the opportunity to demonstrate the very real difference that people working in this sector make to the lives of people with disability and the communities we live in. The Awards will also provide an opportunity to promote the sector as a place of innovation and as a place for a rewarding and successful career with a wide variety of meaningful jobs for people with the right values and approach.

Lastly, the Awards will provide recognition that the journey toward becoming a more inclusive Australia is everyone’s responsibility. Small changes to the way we ensure people with disability are considered, included and valued, all add up to make a big difference.
