Nominations are now open for the Lithgow Ability Awards, which showcase the many outstanding achievements of individuals and organisations in the Lithgow region who make positive contributions towards social inclusion.

The awards offer a great opportunity to celebrate those in our community who are providing inspiration, showing leadership and enhancing the lives of people with a disability. This year there are 6 award categories in the areas of volunteering, community projects, leadership, sports and business.

Nominations close on 16 October. Due to the covid restrictions this year the awards ceremony will be an online event held during Social Inclusion week in November.

“Nomination forms are available online through Council’s website, Facebook page, at Council’s libraries and Council’s front counter. I urge you to get behind this fantastic occasion and nominate a community member, organisation or business deserving of the award,” said Mayor Ray Thompson.

Lithgow City Council is committed to enabling all people to participate in every part of community life. This commitment is outlined in Council’s Disability Inclusion Action Plan, which can be accessed via the Council website.

For further information about the Lithgow Ability Awards please or to get a copy of Council’s Disability Inclusion Action Plan, please contact Council’s Community Development Officer Ali Kim on 6354 9999.
