Opposite end of the care spectrum from the recent 60 Minutes expose - finally some good news for the disability sector!

National Award win announced for Exceptional Care for You, as Disability Support Services.

Disablity Support Services Award Winner

The Australian Small Business Champion Awards is the only recognition awards programme that celebrates the achievements and considerable economic, social and cultural contributions of today’s 2.5 million small business operators from right across the country. The Awards specifically highlight the finest of Australia’s small businesses in the retail, services and manufacturing industries across a total of 100 categories.


Exceptional Care For You has taken the top gong in the Disability Support Services category for 2024. The number of care hours provided jumped from 15 hours per week to over 3000 hours per week in just two years.


Di says, “We have all seen the negative publicity that often surrounds disability care – the most recent of which was on the 60 Minutes program on the weekend which was nothing short of heart-wrenching." It shows the opposite ends of Disability Services.

Warning: this video is confronting and sickening. We are outraged and horrified by this.


“I started with a mission of doing care differently and providing exceptional care for people with disabilities in the community and this dream has become a reality over the past two years, thanks to the amazing team of carers and nurses we have."  

“Our values of compassion, excellence, teamwork, tolerance and commitment are witnessed in all that we do. Whilst this award has our name on it, the real honour goes to the families that trust us to care for their vulnerable family members,” explained Di Geddes Founder and Director of Exceptional Care For You.


“This year’s Awards saw more than 5,500 small business submissions from cities as well as rural, regional and suburban towns in every Australian state and territory,” explained Steve Loe, Awards Founder and Managing Director of Precedent Productions, which co-ordinates the Australian Small Business Champion Awards.

“Opening a business today requires steadfast commitment, leadership, savviness, creativity, people skills, vision, social consciousness and a spirited drive – all elements of success that our independent judging panel pinpointed as among the key reasons for their selection of Exceptional Care For You as 2024 sole Champion of the Disability Support Services category,” he said.


Ms Geddes thanked Precedent Productions, the sponsors and the judges for valuing the difference her company is making every day in the lives of people living with a disability.
