In 2017, we paired up with the Information Access Group to create our annual report.

Together we worked on a design concept and made sure the text was written in plain language. We also produced an Easy Read version of the annual report so that our information could be understood by the widest possible audience.

We are excited to announce that the 2017 NSS Annual Report just won bronze at the latest Australasian Reporting Awards!
