2021 Disability Awards Lifetime Achievement Honour Roll Inductee - Maurice Gleeson OAM.

BSRV's President, Maurice Gleeson OAM was honoured to be inducted into the 'Lifetime Achievement Honour Roll' of the Victorian Disability Awards, by the Department of Health and Human Services on 28 September at their virtual Awards ceremony.

The Lifetime achievement honour roll recognises exceptional individuals who have made a significant contribution over the past 20 years and demonstrated an outstanding commitment to the rights, participation and inclusion of Victorians with disability. 

Maurice has now been President of BSRV for 30 years and has improved the lives of more than 25,000 Victorians with vision loss and their families since joining BSRV in 1982. His vision and dedication have seen him break down the barriers to participation for people who are blind or vision impaired, while broadening the range of sport and recreation activities available.
