Testimonials
What a phenomenal night! It is a pleasure to be associated with such an inspirational awards ceremony. To witness the outstanding work of all the nominees and award winners was extraordinary, the atmosphere was incredible and I had the best time hosting alongside Cerrie – I can’t wait for next year.
Brian Dowling
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.
Aderonke Apata
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.

The National Diversity Awards are a wonderful way to recognise the extraordinary contribution of real people to our communities. It’s a delight to be able to support this fantastic celebration of local heroes. And what a great night, we all had the very best time and the feedback has been tremendous. We are very excited about next year and working with you on other projects.

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 It’s a long journey, but these awards are a brilliant and amazingly fun way to celebrate all that’s been archived so far and inspire the next steps.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
Thank you so very much for awarding me the Positive Role Model Award for Gender. I was pleased to be nominated, delighted to be shortlisted and proud to be amongst the other women nominees, but I was shocked to win the award.
Karen Ingala Smith
I was truly humbled, uplifted and inspired by this unique event and everyone recognised on the evening. The National Diversity Awards highlighted the phenomenal work being done up and down the country; from positive role models through to life changing charities, diversity was celebrated in its purest form.
Sol Campbell
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.
