Nominations for Victoria’s most prestigious disability sector awards are open, Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing Martin Foley announced today.
Now in their fifth year, the Victorian Disability Sector Awards honour individuals, teams, organisations and businesses who go above and beyond to help people with a disability achieve their personal goals.
Previous winners have included developers of the nifty ‘Out and About’ app that helps people with a disability, their family and carers plan a day out through information about accessible venues and events.
Another past winner designed an accessible hot air balloon basket, allowing wheelchair users to have a unique flight experience.
The awards are a joint initiative between National Disability Services and the Department of Health & Human Services.
Nominations for the 2015 Victorian Disability Sector Awards close on 30 March 2015 and can be made by any member of the public.
