Lighthouse Awards

Lighthouse Awards – Be recognised for your inclusive workplace

This is an amazing opportunity to celebrate and share good practice in local government.
After a two-year project to increase the employment of people with disability in local government, the Disability Services Commission and LG Professionals WA would like to recognise the achievements.

The Lighthouse Award Categories:

  • CEO Leadership (Metro & Regional)
  • DES Provider / Local Government Partnership
  • Lighthouse Grant Project

There are two categories – one for metropolitan/regional centres and one for regional areas.

We are also seeking nominations for the best DES Provider/Local Government partnership.

 If you are (or have) a CEO who has provided strong leadership for the employment of people with disability – whether or not your local government was involved in the Lighthouse Project – we want to hear from you!

You can apply for one or both of the open awards. There will be a third award to recognise the best Lighthouse grant funded project. All grant recipients will automatically be entered into this award category.


The awards will be presented at 3pm on Friday, 25 August 2017, as part of the first partnership forum jointly hosted by LG Professionals WA Community Development Network, NDS WA’s Access and Inclusion Sub Committee, and WALGA.
As well as the awards ceremony taking place at Crown Hotel, Perth, we will present the findings of the Lighthouse Project and launch the tools and resources it has created.

We warmly welcome your attendance at this event – you can register for the whole 'Voices for Inclusion' day or just the Lighthouse recognition event.

If you have any questions about the Lighthouse Project or the Recognition Event please contact Jayne Bryant, Senior Consultant at Localise on (08) 9271 1030.
