Excellence in Social and Cultural Access Award’ - Victorian Disability Services Awards 2016
We are pleased to announce that one of our Family and Volunteer Coordinators Nga Do has won the ‘Excellence in Social and Cultural Access Award’ as part of the 2016 Victorian Disability Services Awards. The Awards celebrate excellence and recognise people and organisations who make outstanding contributions to empowering people with a disability and creating an inclusive community.
Nga has worked with families in the Vietnamese community who have a child with a disability for 33 years. She is an authentic and determined champion of inclusion and has a vision for a better life for all children with a disability and for the acceptance and breaking down of stigma for those children and their families who come from a Vietnamese background. Her passionate advocacy, her empowerment and enabling of mutual support for families and her innovative resources that assist children with a disability in social skill development inspires both her families, her community and her colleagues at Extended Families.
Living with a disability can be difficult. We support people aged 0-30 and their families in Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula to build friendships and connect with their community.Read More
