National Disability Services (NDS), in partnership with the Disability Services Commission, has established the Disability Support Awards (formerly known as the Disability Support Worker Awards).

The Disability Support Awards recognise people in the disability sector providing supports of the highest standards to increase the quality of life and inclusion of people with disability in Western Australia. These are people who go beyond ordinary standards of service and have a profound impact on the lives of the people they work with and support.

Importantly, the awards showcase the disability services sector as a place of innovation, a place for employment, and a place to have a career.
