Mollie Dyer Awards
VACCA is delighted to announce the return of the Mollie Dyer Awards in 2021.
The Awards, now in their second year, were created in honour of VACCA’s inspirational co-founder Aunty Mollie Dyer.
Taking our cue from the exemplary and tireless work of our co-founder, the Mollie Dyer Awards celebrate excellence in work undertaken over the past 12 months in support of Aboriginal children, young people and families during the crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic.
There are three category areas through which to honour the work of Aboriginal Community Leaders, ACCO Leaders and Emerging Leaders and their contributions to Aboriginal child and family welfare, particularly children who are in out-of-home care.
Winners in each category will each receive a commemorative plaque and a cash prize of $3,000 for showing leadership through the crisis of the past 12 months.
The awards ceremony will be streamed via VACCA’s Facebook page and website on Friday 26 November 2021.
