Intelife nominees for the 2015 NDS Disability Support Awards
The nominees for the 2015 NDS Disability Support Awards were recently revealed, with Intelife representing a large proportion of the nominees.
Of the 57 organisations, businesses and individuals nominated for the awards, Intelife was the third-highest nominated body with 11 individuals or services nominated from our organisation, equating to nearly 20 per cent of the nominees.
Two of the Intelife nominees even had multiple submissions submitted on their behalf, taking our total number of submissions presented to the NDS to 13 votes. With a total of 162 individual submissions received this year - a record number - this took the Intelife representation to approximately eight per cent of the total voting pool, a marked increase on last year's number of submissions.
The awards recognise people in the disability sector who provide supports of the highest standards to increase the quality of life and inclusion of people with disability in Western Australia, and showcase the sector as a place of innovation, a place for employment, and a place to have a career.
They also celebrate the achievements of people with disability and reward people who demonstrate excellence, passion, vision and commitment to supporting people with disability.
Winners will be announced and presented with their award at a gala dinner on Saturday 28 March 2015 at Crown Perth. For a full list of the nominees, click here.
