Case Study National Homelessness Services Achievement Awards

A huge effort deserving of recognition

Choosing seven winners from around 150 worthy nominations was a big ask at this year’s National Homelessness Services Achievement Awards held on 1 May 2013 in Melbourne’s Town Hall.

The awards recognise exceptional effort and showcase excellence and innovation by organisations, services and programs responding to the needs of people experiencing or at risk of homelessness. Entries in the seven award categories reflected the breadth and diversity of services across Australia with some great examples of both small and large programs running in regional, rural and remote communities.

‘With all that has occurred in 2013 from the natural disasters in our region, this Award has provided a much needed boost that the sector really appreciates. It has provided us with the knowledge that we are making a difference to the community and the sector.’  (Andrea Bax from the Bundaberg Housing and Homeless Forum, award finalist in category 7: Excellence in addressing homelessness in a regional, rural or remote location).
