Innovation Awards 2013

Unprecedented number of entries received

Applications for the Lake Maintenance Innovation Awards for 2013 have now closed with an unprecedented 74 entries received.

This is a significant increase from previous Awards; the DHHS, THOs and our partners are embracing the idea of showcasing innovation and celebrating our achievements!

52 applications in Health and a further 22 in Human Services and the community sector were received from a diverse range of service settings and locations and from a variety of professional and community project teams. This has certainly left our judging panels with a difficult task ahead.

For the first time we are recognising innovation and excellence in a single Awards program across all our organisations and the community sector. This is a transition year so we have maintained our separate judging panels for the 2013 program.

The Health judging panel is:

  • Ruth Forrest MLC – Member for Murchison
  • Darren Mathewson – Aged and Community Services Tasmania
  • Sue Kilpatrick – Pro Vice-Chancellor, University of Tasmania
  • Mike Woolley – consumer representative

The Human Services and Community Sector judging panel is:

  • Ingrid Ganley, Disability and Community Services
  • Bruce Kemp, Child and Youth Services
  • David Clements, National Disability Services
  • Dale Rahmanovic, Family Support Services
  • Peter White, Housing Tasmania
  • Karen Bellette, Disability and Community Services

Assessment of the applications is currently underway and finalists are due to be announced on 4 October.

Winners will be announced at the presentation evening to be held on the evening of 18 October.

Every application received was able to demonstrate excellent examples of how we're helping patients and clients. Huge thanks to everyone who put the time and the effort into submitting an application.

Celebrating your success will allow us to grow and develop to benefit our clients and to build on the services and programs we deliver.

Director of Nursing & Midwifery

- Thank you Stuart. All your help over the years has been important and apapceirted.It's a great time for all Tasmanians and one of the keys to the Save Ralphs Bay success was the engagement with and support from all stripes and political parties.The State ban will surely benefit from the current balance of power in Tasmanian politics as will other bills dear to our hearts. The battle to save the bay, however, was well and truly locked in and won before the 2010 election results. The community has all political parties to thank for that.July 16, 2010 12:22 pm

but God has revealed thurogh the Bible what rights he has bestowed upon Christians.One such right is to spread the Word of God and to denounce anything or anyone contrary to that Word. We find today that people are claiming that its their right to stop that and keep Christians from telling them where they are heading if they don't get saved. Basically those unsaved have no God given rights apart from getting saved, and so why should we as Christians support what God does not.How can Australia ever become a nation under the sovereignty of God himself if his children are muzzled by a law that allows the ungodly to prevent Christians from practising their faith as in spreading the Word of God.Even now its questionable if I can tell you where Australia is heading if they don't turn to God, as this is a public forum. A Bill of rights would prevent me from even suggesting that you or anyone else is heading for Hell because of the life they are leading.Another right is to Worship God. Recently people in Brisbane have complained to the Police and Council about a number of churches Worshipping too much. With a Bill of Rights we would have people who are not Christians closing down these times of Worship thus muzzling Christians from exercising this most precious time. Instead of what the Bible pattern where the only ones with God given rights are the Christians we would have everyone else being able to prevent Christians from exercising their rights by those whom the Bible give no rights to.That is why I do not support a Bill of Rights, but support Christians in parliament setting the laws for our great nation, which will afford rights to Christians and not remove them by unelected officials lobbied by the self confessed unbelievers.Harold, I at least hope you support the internet filter which will protect the innocence of our children and keep the internet civil. Anyhow thankyou for listening and prayerfully considering my words.Praise the Lord for all the good that the ACL has done.
