Alex Greenwich MP has called for nominations for the 2014 Seniors Week Local Achievement Awards for the Sydney electorate.
“Older people contribute in many ways to our community – as workers, as volunteers and as advocates for a better community”, said Mr Greenwich.
“Seniors Local Achievement Awards are a small way to recognise and show appreciation for the talents, skills and experience of people over 60, and the organisations that work for them.
“I’m looking for nominations from the community of older people and organisations who make a difference to the local community so that we can acknowledge them.
The 2014 awards categories for the Sydney electorate are:
- Community advocate – individual campaigning for reform or improvements;
- Community services – individual helping individuals or groups;
- Community organisation – providing a voice for older people;
- Community service provider – providing help to older people;
- Specialist community – serving a particular group or community.
Local awards for each NSW electorate are being given in 2014 for the first time.
