NDS honours two long-serving colleagues with the President’s Service Award

Ground view of a crowd clapping


NDS has honoured two long-serving contributors to the organisation with the President’s Service Award. The Award is presented to people who have provided excellent service to NDS. 

Group CEO of PeopleKind Group and former NDS Director, Gordon Trewern, was recognised for 40 years in disability services, 15 years of which he sat on the NDS board. 

Gordon has spent his entire working life in disability services, joining Nulsen Disability Services in Western Australia as a support worker in 1982. By 1989, he was coordinator of their accommodation services, and became CEO in 1994. In his forty years at Nulsen – recently rebranded as PeopleKind – he has seen it go from custodial care provider to a multi-faceted organisation offering a range of disability accommodation and support.
