2017 Shining Light Awards - Maurice Corcoran

2017 Shining Light Awards - Maurice Corcoran

Maurice Corcoran is one of Tenison Woods College's Shining Light Recipients for 2017. Maurice attended Tenison College from 1972-1974. After leaving school, he took up an apprenticeship in fitting and turning, but at age 18 was involved in a car accident which left him with quadriplegia. After an intensive rehabilitation process, Maurice was able to drive again and return to work in Mount Gambier, but continued his rehabilitation with regular visits to Adelaide. It was during these visits he discovered his passion for encouraging and counselling other paraplegic and quadriplegic patients on their road to recovery. Maurice went on to complete a Diploma in Social Work and during this time he was a member of the Paraplegic and Quadriplegic Association, appointed Chair of the group in 1983. Maurice now has a Bachelor of Social Work and over 30 years’ experience as a social worker, advocate, strategic planner and policy officer. His work has significantly influenced issues affecting the lives of people living with disability. He has developed advocacy training programs and played a pivotal role in the drive for accessible public transport in Australia. Maurice has a long list of accolades, but perhaps his most significant was being made a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in 2006.
