Winners are Grinners – Shoalhaven Business Awards 2019

Flagstaff is extremely proud and excited to be the winner of two Shoalhaven Business Chamber awards for Excellence in Community Services and Excellence in Social Enterprise.

The awards night was held at the Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre on Friday 23rd August, with a group of Flagstaff managers and participants attending the Shoalhaven Business Awards. Our team were proud to receive not one, but TWO awards recognising Flagstaff’s contribution to the community and to the lives of people with a disability.

The Community Service award acknowledges Flagstaff as a not-for-profit organisation that positively contributes to the Shoalhaven community through projects, services and other long-term initiatives. The organisation’s community services division, Flagstaff Life Choices, provides life skills and employment for people with a disability and works with numerous partners who share similar values of support, leadership, inclusion and celebration.

Flagstaff also received the Social Enterprise award recognising them as an organisation that exists to tackle important social issues, be it social, environmental, cultural or economic. Flagstaff operates various enterprise divisions across its sites (e.g. coffee, laundry and glove recycling, fine foods, print, digital & mail, woodworking, sewing, packaging, grounds maintenance) all holding the social purpose of offering an inclusive work environment, job opportunities and training, whilst providing economic and employment growth. Further supporting this purpose, Flagstaff also provides programs such as School Leaver Employment Support, Vocational Pathways, Project LEAP and other Supported Employment and Life Choices programs.

As you can see our team members who attended the evening enjoyed dressing up for the important occasion and were beaming with pride!

A big thank you to the award sponsors Think Tank Business Services and Care South, as well as Shoalhaven Business Chamber for hosting the awards night.

The Flagstaff Group would also like to congratulate all winners and finalists of the night.
