What is the Enabling Environments Award?

Good relationships promote well-being, but many organisations and groups fail to address this aspect of people’s lives. The Enabling Environments Award is a quality mark given to those who can demonstrate they are achieving an outstanding level of best practice in creating and sustaining a positive and effective social environment.

Enabling Environments are:

  • Places where positive relationships promote well-being for all participants
  • Places where people experience a sense of belonging
  • Places where all people involved contribute to the growth and well-being of others


  • Places where people can learn new ways of relating
  • Places that recognise and respect the contributions of all parties in helping relationships

The Enabling Environments Award is based on core values that contribute to healthy relationships. Through a standards-based accreditation program your organisation will be supported in providing evidence that you are achieving excellence in providing a healthy relational environment for all their participants.
