Westhaven receives Regional Business Award


Westhaven was presented the Excellence in Social Enterprise award at the Western NSW Business Chamber Awards Gala Dinner on 5 May 2017.

The Excellence in Social Enterprise award recognises a business that has been established to further a social purpose in a financially sustainable way.

CEO Christian Grieves said that the award reflects the organisation’s compassionate and caring staff.

“The award is a fabulous recognition of the wonderful work of our caring staff, who are thoughtful and compassionate about supporting people with a disability to achieve all they want in their lives. We want everyone to know more about the fantastic 300 staff who work for us and encourage other caring people to consider us as a possible employer.”

The majority of Westhaven’s multi-million dollar turnover is reinvested into the community by employing local people and using local services. Through our programs and activities, Westhaven helps to address the important social aim of promoting greater acceptance of diversity.

Westhaven now proceeds to the state finals in November 2017.
