Testimonials
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating an exceptional night, the challenges ahead are still enormous, but with the ND Award in my hand, I will journey forward with renewed hope and ambition to try to do so much more, and in my efforts, hopefully I will, in some way, contribute to making the vital cultural shift within our society.

It’s such a pleasure and delight to be hosting the diversity awards again. For me, championing our differences is integral to building positive and peaceful communities, where equality has a chance to exist. It’s a long journey, but these awards are a brilliant and amazingly fun way to celebrate all that’s been archived so far and inspire the next steps.
Cerrie Burnell
It was an amazing experience to be surrounded by such amazing people on what was an inspiring night. Congratulations to the team on bringing together such a fantastic event.
The Open University
I am proud and found it so humbling to be part of the award night not only that, it is an honour for me personally to be recognised and thought worthy of winning the Positive Role Model Award for LGBT due to standing up for myself and campaigning for the rights of other LGBT asylum seekers’ struggle in the UK. I didn’t expect I would win it.

The National Diversity Awards recognises the importance of the work people like me do in the community and those of other fantastic groups and organisations.  Simply put I love the community and I love young people. Investing in both is a privilege and a rewarding experience.

The National Diversity Awards was a very humbling experience. I think it was important to see the range of successful groups and activities that are happening around the country (especially at a grass roots level) and try and learns lessons from them.
