2017 NDS WA Disability Support Awards

Great Southern Personnel (GSP) proudly nominated 3 Employment Coordinators for the awards. They were Siobhain, Dee and Kris.  Siobhain, Dee and Michelle (Bunbury site Team Leader) attended the event and although weren’t award winners they had a great night and were thrilled to be part of the event.

This year's awards drew 130 nominations, and winners were announced at a gala dinner held at Crown Perth on Saturday April 29, in front of sell-out crowd of 750 guests.

National Disability Services (NDS), WA State Manager Julie Waylen said the awards set an important benchmark for excellence, and recognise the positive impact support workers can have on the lives of people with disability.

"Working in the disability sector is more than just a job; it’s a great career choice for those looking for meaningful challenges and those who want to have a real and profound impact on the lives of people with disability and their families," she said.

It's about giving support that recognises the person, respects their dignity and enables them to live a good life.

GSP would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the efforts of all its Employment Coordinators in assisting people with a disability, illness or injury to gain sustainable employment.
