Nationals Member for Mildura, Peter Crisp, is inviting residents of the Mildura electorate to nominate individuals, teams and businesses that have made a difference to the lives of people with disability for the 2013 Victorian Disability Sector Awards.
“There were many examples in our electorate of people showing a passion and real commitment to improving the lives of some of the most disadvantaged members of our community,” Mr Crisp said.
“This is an opportunity for these wonderful people who often work behind the scenes, to be recognised.”
Nominations for the 2013 Victorian Disability Sector Awards can be made across nine different award categories that recognise excellence in service, advocacy and personal and community support for people with disability.
“One in five Victorians experience disability either personally or have friends, family or other loved ones with disability whose support deserve recognition,” Mr Crisp said.
“These awards are an important opportunity to publicly acknowledge the innovation and commitment of individuals and organisations that provide services and support to people with disability,” Ms Wooldridge said.
The Victorian Disability Sector Awards are a partnership between National Disability Services (NDS), Disability Professionals Victoria (DPV) and the Victorian Coalition Government.
Nominations for the awards close on 13 March and winners will be announced at the Victorian Disability Sector Awards ceremony on 19 June 2013.
