The Anna Alderson award was instigated in 2016 in memory of our former Chairperson Anna, and the example she set in demonstrating the values that are important to Rise. Each year the award will be given to an individual staff member and a team who have demonstrated one or more of Rise’s values through outstanding service.
Rise values:

  • Integrity: We do the right thing.

  • Respect: We listen and trust.
  • Welcoming: We offer a place to belong.
  • Optimism: We are hopeful and confident.
Nominations are invited from employees, volunteers, clients and family and can be made at any time by completing the form below.
The nominations received by 31 August 2022 will be reviewed by the Rise Board and a winner chosen.  The winners will be presented with a $500 prize at Rise's end of year staff event.

Nominees, Aleesha Williams and Peter Ombaye.
