Nominations close soon for the NT Disability Inclusion Awards

Northern Territory Disability Inclusion Awards


Nominations close for the 2023 Northern Territory Disability Inclusion Awards on Friday 29 September. The awards recognise the exceptional individuals working in the disability sector, as well as government and non-government services, organisations, businesses and programs that demonstrate outstanding commitment to improving the lives of people with disability.

Supported by the NT Government, the awards align closely with the Northern Territory Disability Strategy, with new-look awards and categories that promote an inclusive Territory where people with disability are valued, respected and can contribute to community, no matter where they live.

NDS encourages Territorians to show their appreciation of disability workers, friends, family members and organisations that they feel have contributed to improving the quality of life and well-being of people with disability. Nominations close on Friday 29 September at 5:00pm (ACST).

There are five award categories for 2023:

  1. Excellence in Rights Promotion
  2. Inclusive Communities Award
  3. Excellence in Innovation
  4. Excellence in Supporting Employment Outcomes
  5. Excellence in Supporting Mental Health disabilities and recovery programs (Psychosocial Disability)

For more information, including how to nominate someone, visit our awards’ webpage.

Finalists and winners will be announced at the Northern Territory Disability Inclusion Awards ceremony on 17 November at the Legislative Assembly of the Northern Territory.
