2017 Peter Edwards Memorial Award – call for nominations close 4 August

The late Peter Edwards AM was involved for many years in redefining and reshaping services for people with intellectual disability. Each year, his significant contribution is recognised through an Award established in his name, which is granted in two categories:

  • To a person with intellectual disability in recognition of personal development and/or achievement.
  • To a person who works directly with people with intellectual disability in recognition of personal contribution to the lives of people with intellectual disability.

The Award comprises a monetary component to assist further development, which could include (but is not restricted to) undertaking a project, assisting in the pursuit of activities that enhance the life of the person with intellectual disability, undertaking training or skills development programs, purchasing books or equipment, or participation in a seminar or conference.
