Western Desert Mob Wins Double at Community Services Awards

Western Desert Mob has made a significant impression on the 2007 Community Services Industry Awards in Western Australia, winning two of the three awards for which they were nominated.

The group were recipients of the award ' Category Two: Working Creatively to Make a Difference' (large group or organisation) and 'Category Nine: Outstanding Commitment by an Individual.'

Western Desert Mob Project Coordinator Tim Acker, who was recipient of the Category Nine Award, said both awards were a fantastic recognition of the hard work and positive outcomes being achieved by Western Desert Mob.

"These awards recognise the collaboration of a team of strong and passionate people and we are very appreciative of the support," Mr Acker said.

Western Desert Mob was also a finalist in the Category Three: Strengthening Rural and Remote Communities and were the only organisation to win two awards at the event.

One of 134 worthy nominees in the 2007 awards, Western Desert Mob was represented alongside many well-recognised community groups and organisations.

Western Desert Mob would like to thank the Department of Child Protection and Lotterywest who sponsored the awards.
