Australia’s top 26 organisations and teams working in disability, allied health, aged care and community services have today been revealed as finalists in the 2021 HESTA Excellence Awards.
Launched last year, the Awards highlight the extraordinary work being done across the disability, allied health, aged care and community services sectors to enhance the health and wellbeing of individuals, families and communities.
HESTA CEO Debby Blakey said every single finalist has demonstrated extraordinary leadership and dedication to improving the quality of care and support for more Australians over a challenging year.
“From improving social connection for older people during COVID to increasing health education for people from refugee backgrounds, these professionals are having an incredible impact on the lives of the people who need these services the most,” Ms Blakey said.
“The quality of this year’s nominations has been phenomenal, and I wish to thank every nominee and finalist for their important work. HESTA is very honoured to help recognise their achievements.”
Finalists from each of the four sectors were chosen across the categories of Outstanding Organisation and Team Excellence.
The eight winners will share in a $60,000 prize money pool to be used
