Thomas Butler – Winner Excellence in Indigenous Programs

 

The Disability Trust would like to congratulate Thomas Butler on winning the NDS award for Excellence in Indigenous Programs.

Thomas is an Aboriginal Elder who has developed a culture group mentorship and support program with The Disability Trust, specifically designed for young indigenous men with a disability. Using a blend of modern and traditional tools and techniques, Thomas assists the young men to develop their everyday life skills as well as providing education about their culture, language and health. In its third year, participants of the program have been able to engage at a deeper level with their own indigenous and non-indigenous communities, building stronger long term relationships and futures.
