Nominations have been extended until 26 July for the Victorian Disability Awards. An initiative of the Department of Families, Fairness and Housing, the awards recognise Victorian people, groups or organisations that champion disability rights and inclusion, promote the use of co-design, advocate improvements to policies and services, and are role models in the sector. 

The awards have four categories, reflecting the Inclusive Victoria: State Disability Plan 2022-26: 

  • Advocacy for People (including self-advocacy) 
  • Leadership in Co-design 
  • Disability Pride Champion 
  • Lifetime Achievement Award 

NDS encourages members to nominate any person or team in your organisation that you feel are making an outstanding contribution to the lives of people with disability. Nominations now close on 26 July.  Other enquiries can be made to the Awards Secretariat on 03 9285 3873 or awards@dffh.vic.gov.au

Members should also consider nominating their outstanding candidates for NDS’s National Disability Awards, held during the Executive Leaders Conference in December. We will announce details soon.
