12 May 06, 10:57 AM - Positive Action Awards North West 2006
Lady Bracknell, who is no longer young, is constantly astonished these days by the speed at which an entire year can rush by.
So she was surprised to realise that the time has come round once again to make nominations for the Positive Action North West Awards:
"The aim of the Positive Action Awards is to provide an opportunity for disabled people and carers to nominate employers, businesses, service providers or individuals that deserve recognition for promoting independence, delivering accessible and/or inclusive services, or maintaining exemplary employment practices for disabled people and/or carers. Anyone may submit nominations for the awards, and may nominate as many different people, companies and organisations as they wish. However, the people they nominate must be based in the Northwest of England."
Awards are presented to employers, service providers and individuals. A complete list of sub-categories is available here.
Nominations - which close on Friday 4 August - can be made online (although Lady Bracknell has a sneaking suspicion that the form might not be accessible to people with visual impairments). There's a space on the form for you to indicate whether, if your nominee is successful, you'd like to attend the awards ceremony and cheer them on. You wouldn't get any travelling expenses met by the organisers, but your meal would be provided free of charge. Each nominee is limited to a maximum of two nominators. Names will be drawn out of a hat if more than two people have nominated the same candidate.
So if you live in, or have visited, the North West, and you know a deserving individual or organisation in the area, don't forget to send your nomination/s in before the closing date.
