NDS has today taken action to postpone the 2020 Disability Support Awards.

This difficult decision has been made in response to the developments in public health concerns and advice regarding COVID-19.

The Western Australian Department of Health has indicated that there will be a higher risk of COVID-19 spreading through WA by late April or mid-May, when the Awards were originally scheduled.

NDS State Manager Julie Waylen said “NDS has made this decision to prioritise the health of people with disability and to support our members to prioritise their organisations’ response to COVID-19 during this time.”

“Judging for the 2020 Disability Support Awards is currently underway and will continue as planned. Finalists and Winners of the 2020 Disability Support Awards will be announced at the rescheduled event – date to be advised soon.”

“All, nominees, nominators and sponsors have also been notified of the change of date. People who have already purchased tickets to attend the Awards will be given the opportunity to transfer their tickets to the new dates or get a full refund.”

NDS thanks members for their support of the Disability Support Awards and understanding of the need to make this decision.
