Rob Wins Top WA Disability Award (28 April 2018)

Rob Wins Top WA Disability Award

CLA was recognised for its outstanding staff at the recent WA Disability Support Awards which recognise people who provide the highest standard of support to increase the quality of life of people with disability.

CLA’s Rob Golledge won the Excellence in Regional Support Award, in recognition of his outstanding contribution in helping the people that CLA supports to connect to their community.  As part of his role as Community Network Coach, Rob coordinates a range of social, educational, sporting and artistic activities to enhance the life skills of the people CLA supports.

“Rob has risen to the challenge of finding a variety of cost effective, sustainable ways to help individuals engage with their community and increase their independent living skills.” said Lisa Archibald, CLA’s Community Manager.  “Active recreation for people with disabilities increases wellbeing and alleviates loneliness and boredom in the people who attend the activities Rob coordinates”.

Hosted by National Disability Services (NDS) WA at the Crown Perth on Saturday 28 April, more than 750 people came together to recognise people in the disability sector providing supports of the highest standards in WA.

The Awards celebrated the achievements of people who demonstrate excellence, passion, vision and commitment to supporting people with disability. They recognise those who go beyond ordinary standards of service and have a profound impact on the lives of the people they work with and support.
