On 24th October, HMAS Stirling received an award for their fantastic work fostering employment for people with disability. This includes their work with our DAAP team on Garden Island!
Commanding Officer Captain Brian Delamont received the award from the Minister of Disability Services, Hon. Stephen Noel Dawson MLC. The certificate recognises their commitment to equality, diversity, and providing opportunities for individuals with disability and mental illness to engage in meaningful work.
“It has been great working the DAAP team. We are committed to creating a work environment that values, respects and is inclusive to all,” says Captain Delamont.
The Navy chose Workpower to establish the Western Australian Defence Administrative Assistance Program (DAAP) in June 2016, and they’ve been going strong ever since. The team provides administrative support to the naval base and their work has led to the creation of an inclusive work environment where the DAAP team work alongside Defence employees.
As always, the team are leading the way for Workpower and we couldn’t be more proud of the great work they’ve done!
Workpower is a part of the Western Australian Disability Enterprises (WADEs), one of eight organisations who provide opportunities and employment for individuals with disability and mental illness. Their work foster social outcomes, covers a range of industries, and produces high quality products and services.
