SHARC is honoured to have received the Outstanding Organisation Award at the 2019 HESTA Community Sector Awards.
The HESTA Community Sector Awards recognise outstanding service provision, advocacy and leadership in improving the lives of people who rely on access to the services of this sector. The Outstanding Organisation Award is made annually to an organisation which has made an outstanding contribution to social justice in Australia through the development or provision of a high quality and innovative program, project or specific service.
Announced on Tuesday night at a glittering awards dinner in Canberra, the award was accepted on behalf of the SHARC community by Heather Pickard, SHARC Chief Executive Officer.
“Seeing a real change in people’s lives is one of the most rewarding things that we do,” said Heather. “It’s fantastic to be recognised with this Award and we will use the prize money to further develop our online and digital platforms, enabling us to better reach people in rural and regional areas.”
SHARC thanks HESTA and ME, the awards sponsor. Congratulations go to all the other winners and finalists who participated in these awards, representing the wonderful work being carried out in the community sector.
