Every year Focus ACT recognises the outstanding contributions made by direct support workers to Focus clients. The Support Worker of the Year is picked from the recipients of the Support Worker of the Quarter award. The winners are nominated by clients, guardians, family members and staff.
Peter Bell was announced as Focus ACT’s Support Worker of the Year during the Organisation’s Christmas Party at the Hellenic Club in December 2016. Peter was presented a cash award and certificate by Narelle Hargreaves (ACT Official Visitor for Disability Services).
“The award for me is recognition of continual excellent care that runs throughout the organization. This has also given me a greater understanding of how I have been supported by my colleagues through honest conversations which allows me to re-focus and re-connect on what is real in my life, and work is part of it.” – Peter Bell
