Here’s what the nomination said about Julie:
Julie Langdon has successfully lead Extended Families Australia through times of intense change with energy and focus, navigating the challenging NDIS environment to ensure growth of vital services that support children with disabilities and their families. Staff numbers have grown from 25 to 60 in the last year, and Julie has engaged and retained key staff in the changing commercial environment. Extended families has just achieved 40 years of servicing the community and without Julie the organisation would most likely not exist today.
Julie is passionate about the value of people with a disability experiencing real and inclusive participation in their community. She has also championed the Melbourne Vietnamese community as they face the particular challenges in their culture where disability is frequently met with stigma and shame. Julie inspires staff, the committee and community and has built a culture of excellence in service delivery and living organisational values. Julie is a star and her impact in the community is worthy of this great accolade.
