The Australian Disability Enterprises Excellence Awards recognize, encourage and promote the significant contribution that Australian Disability Enterprises make in improving the lives of people with disability. The Awards also provide an opportunity to recognize the dual focus of Australian Disability Enterprises as viable businesses providing high quality employment to people with disability.

The Australian Disability Enterprises Excellence Awards are for Australian Disability Enterprises demonstrating new and innovative practices supportive of the development of high quality and sustainable employment, whilst providing premium employment conditions to their employees with disability. The Awards will acknowledge organisations that provide best practice and innovative training opportunities, achieve strong wage outcomes, provide safe working conditions, social inclusion and participation for the employees and quality of service to people with disability.

If you are an Australian Disability Enterprise that has made a significant contribution to ensuring that people with disability are encouraged to participate to their full potential in employment, you can nominate for the Australian Disability Enterprise Awards 2011.

The Awards will be presented at the National Disability Services Employment forum to be held 5 September 2011 in Sydney.
