Australia’s top 24 organisations and teams working in disability, allied health, aged care and community services have today been revealed, the largest number of finalists ever announced in HESTA Awards history.
Finalists in the inaugural HESTA Excellence Awards are in the running to share in a $60,000 prize money pool.
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 each of the 24 finalists have been selected for their leadership, compassion and incredible dedication to improve the quality of care and support for more Australians.
“Their work has pushed boundaries, shown innovation and is making a real difference to people’s lives,” Ms Blakey said.
“These highly skilled professionals deserve to be recognised for the incredible impact they have had in their communities, which is why HESTA is proud and privileged to help shine a spotlight on their achievements.”
Finalists from each of the four sectors were chosen across the categories of Outstanding Organisation and Team Excellence and were selected from hundreds of nominations by an independent judging panel.
The eight winners will each receive $7500
