HESTA Community Sector Awards – Outstanding Organisation 2016 FinalistIn early November we were nominated for a HESTA Community Sector Award for Outstanding Organisation. Our ‘Colourful Dreaming’ program was presented as an example of innovation and good practice:

“SHINE for Kids Co-operative Ltd, North Parramatta, NSW – For developing the ‘Colourful Dreaming’ program to support children of incarcerated Aboriginal men by facilitating a community support network for those affected.”

At a glamorous gala awards night on Thursday 17 November, 2016’s Outstanding Organisation was named as Arts Project Australia, whom we heartily congratulate on their well deserved acclaim. We are very happy to be in their company, as our nomination certainly served to highlight the importance of the work undertaken across our organisation.
