Inclusion WA Finalist in CSE Awards!

Inclusion WA Finalist in CSE Awards!

Inclusion WA was this week announced as a finalist in the Community Service Excellence Awards.

Announced Wednesday, Inclusion WA was selected as one of the finalists for the Medium Organisation Category, for the Youth Connect Program.

The awards, which are held as part of the WACOSS 2014 Conference, were started to honour community service organisations that work tirelessly to help Western Australians every day.

The Awards celebrate the work of those who dedicate themselves to assisting some of the State’s most vulnerable people, often expecting little in return.

Local Government and Community Services Minister, the Honourable Tony Simpson and Steve Joske CSC, President of WACOSS, along with our sponsors, will announce the winners at a Gala Ceremony and Dinner on Tuesday 6 May 2014 at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Inclusion WA’s CEO Paul Fleay, was thrilled that the organisation had received this recognition.

“It is very exciting for us as an organisation, but also very humbling, as there are many organisations, individuals and volunteers in Western Australia who do incredible work day in, day out.”

“To be chosen as a finalist really indicates that the work that we are doing is making a positive difference in the lives of young people living with disabilities in WA.” 

Youth Connect

Inclusion WA’s Youth Connect Program is an innovative, person centred program that is making a difference in the lives of young people with disabilities and also, the wider community.

Staff from Youth Connect work one on one with youth (12-17 years) living with a disability and at risk of social isolation.  Staff help them to identify their goals, get involved in mainstream recreational and social activities within their community, address barriers and develop their social skills in order to achieve their goals.
