Congratulations Jessy Byrnes and the Queensland Community Services team. Because of Jessy’s incredible work, we are proud to announce that Able, the Ipswich Police District Crime Prevention Unit and Neighbourhood Watch Australasia were successful in winning an Australian Road Safety Award for the Seniors Road Trip to Road Safety Project at Parliament House on Thursday the 24th of June.
The Australian Road Safety Awards, presented by Suncorp, are an initiative of the Australian Road Safety Foundation. These Awards acknowledge the achievements of road safety stakeholders and increase road safety activity.
Assistant Minister for Road Safety and Freight Transport, Scott Buchholz, said the Awards recognised the achievements and excellence by individuals and organisations committed to improving road safety.
“These Awards place a much deserved spotlight on the hard work and commitment of the many people and organisations, who day in and day out work hard to drive down the road death toll and reduce road trauma”.
The Seniors Road Trip to Road Safety project, funded through the Department of Communities, Disability Services and seniors, provided mature age drivers across the Ipswich and West Moreton Region an opportunity to attend free road safety educational workshops.
Congratulations to the team and Jessy Byrnes, Community Project Manager, in particular, for her passion and dedication on her outstanding contribution to making the free road safety educational workshops to be such a success within the community. A well-deserved recognition of the work Jessy does.
