Thursday 3 December is a special day, celebrating people with disability and all that they achieve, recognising International Day of People with Disability. The day is celebrated around the world to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability.
Unfortunately, we were unable to celebrate in South Australia as we have in previous years but hope that the 2021 event in Victoria Square, Adelaide will be a time for us to celebrate all together again.
As a part of our celebrations for International Day of People with Disability SA 2020, we are recognising four individuals, who have made an extraordinary contribution to the disability community. The awards provided the opportunity for people living with disability, their relatives, carers, and others, to acknowledge someone that has made a difference in their lives.
The 2020 International Day of People with Disability SA Award winners are:
OUTSTANDING PERSON WITH A DISABILITY
Holly Scott - Advocate for Road Safety
Ruth Mott - Volunteer as a PQSA Regional Peer Support Coordinator and advocate for people with a spinal cord injury.
OUTSTANDING SERVICE OR SUPPORT
April Wilson - Advocate for people living with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)
Locky Miller - Volunteer and Mentor for people who have experienced traumatic brain injury.
We would like to congratulate all our winners!
Thanks to the Lifetime Support Authority and Brain Injury SA for working with PQSA to bring the awards to life!
We always welcome feedback, compliments and complaints.
