Written on the 16 June 2015 by Kevin Conolly
Member for Riverstone, Kevin Conolly welcomes the announcement by the Minister for Disability Services, John Ajaka that the nominations are now open for the 2015 NSW Disability Industry Innovation Awards.
The Awards which are now in their fourth year are an opportunity to recognise and thank the hard work of individuals and organisations that are making a difference to the lives of people with disability in NSW.
NSW is at the forefront of preparing for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and recently signed the agreement with the Commonwealth that will roll out the Scheme for children and young people in the Nepean and Blue Mountains area a year ahead of schedule.
This year's Awards will acknowledge organisations that are demonstrating ground breaking ways of preparing for the changes and opportunities which will be offered by the NDIS and will shine the spotlight on individuals and service providers that are leaders in the sector through the delivery of culturally responsive person-centred services," Mr Conolly said.
The Awards are delivered in partnership by the NSW Government and National Disability Services, the Australian peak body for non-government disability services.
Nominations for the 2015 NSW Disability Industry Innovation Awards will close on 3 September 2015.
