Aunty Grace Roberts was a local Aboriginal woman who history records as being a positive role model for her people and a person of great substance. She had a positive and lasting impact on the Coffs Harbour community, and is recognised for her leadership and guidance. From her determination, and by example, she improved the quality of life for Aboriginal people in our city.

Council and the Yandaarra Aboriginal Consultative Committee launched the Grace Roberts Community Development Awards to acknowledge individuals who, like Aunty Grace Roberts have made a significant contribution to enhancing the quality of life of Aboriginal people in the Coffs Harbour area.

The Grace Roberts Community Development Awards are held annually to coincide with NAIDOC Week. The evening Award Ceremony is a celebration and presentation of the Awards including the Grace Roberts Memorial Community Development Award.
