Catholic Welfare announces awards to promote work of member organisations
The Board of Catholic Welfare Australia has announced the establishment of the Catholic Welfare Australia Awards to highlight achievements and encourage excellence among its member organisations.
"Whilst our national network is extremely strong and the internal affirmation of areas of excellence exists the informality of it seems to carry less clout," said the National Director of Catholic Welfare Australia, Mr Toby O'Connor. "The Board wanted to formally recognise the outstanding efforts and achievements by Member Organisations and individuals by holding an annual Awards program in which the results will be announced at Catholic Welfare Australia's Annual Conference."
The establishment of the Awards has been made possible with the assistance of Catholic Church Insurances Ltd (CCI), which is assuming the role of Official Sponsor.
Three Awards will be offered: Award for Excellence in Service (Organisational); Award for Excellence in Service (Individual) - The Perkins Award; Award for Most Innovative Program. Each award recipient will receive a cash prize of $750.00 and a commemorative trophy/plaque.
The results of the Catholic Welfare Australia Awards will be announced in a ceremony to be held during the Official Dinner of the Annual Conference of Catholic Welfare Australia taking place in Sydney in August.
