The Victorian Disability Awards were established in 2011 and are now in their seventh consecutive year. The awards recognise and honour people who make an outstanding contribution to empower and include the lives of people with disabilities living in Victoria.
The awards are Victoria’s premier disability awards. They promote and support people with a disability from diverse backgrounds and identities.
The awards are a joint initiative between National Disability Services and the Department of Health and Human Services.
We encourage nominations from:
- the Victorian community
- people with a disability, their families and carers
- community service organisations and volunteer groups
- disability service providers
- disability peak bodies and committees
Nominees selected as finalists by the judging panel will be invited to the 2017 Victorian Disability Awards ceremony on Wednesday 16 August where the winners will be announced.
Nominations are now closed for 2017 Victorian Disability Awards.
For previous winners and their videos visit the Victorian Disability Awards page on the human services website.
There were many outstanding nominations this year and in some categories the difference between finalists was very close. We appreciate the work that has gone into these amazing nominations.
Congratulations to our 2017 Victorian Disability Awards finalists.
