Celebrating Unsung Heroes

If there is a support worker who has touched your life or the lives of others, take this opportunity to spread the love. Your nomination could be the moment that highlights their dedication and inspires a whole community.


Excellence in Care

The Support Worker of the Year Award isn't just about recognition—it's a celebration of passion, care, and the transformative impact that dedicated professionals bring to the lives of those they support. By nominating someone, you're not only acknowledging their hard work and achievements, but you're also helping to inspire others in the community to strive for excellence.

This award shines a spotlight on those who might otherwise remain in the background, despite their crucial role in enhancing the well-being and quality of life for NDIS clients. It’s about giving back to those who give so much, lifting their spirits, and publicly acknowledging their invaluable contributions.
