Far too often, disability support workers are overlooked compared to other frontline workers like doctors, nurses and paramedics, so this year we’re celebrating Disability Workers Week from 6 December through to 12 December this year to highlight to the community that disability workers are essential workers too.
Throughout Disability Workers Week, we’ll be visiting workplaces, running BBQs and holding other community events to highlight the invaluable and essential work that disability support workers do.
If you get involved in these activities, you’ll get the chance to win one of many exciting prizes. There will be on-the-spot prizes of $50 gift cards up for grabs, as well as our major prize draw where you can enter to win one of 3 main prizes –$600, $300 and $150 in your choice of Coles or Woolies gift cards.
Each activity you attend earns you an entry into the major prize draw. The prizes will be drawn on Tuesday, 15 December.
