Watch the 2014 National Diversity Awards

Charities, role models and community heroes will be honoured at the ceremony showcasing their outstanding devotion to enhancing equality, diversity and inclusion; thus embracing the excellence of all out citizens irrespective of race, faith, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability and culture.

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.

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 It’s a long journey, but these awards are a brilliant and amazingly fun way to celebrate all that’s been archived so far and inspire the next steps.

Firstly I just wanted to say thanks so much to Paul and your amazing team for putting on such an inspiring event.  Apart from the nerves and embarrassment of winning the award, it was probably one of the most fantastic events I’ve been at.

What an inspirational event! Well done to the National Diversity Awards team for putting it all together. Cannot wait for next year’s awards.
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.

To Paul and his special team, we want to thank you for another amazing evening. May this event long continue to raise the profile of groups of individuals who would not get recognition on a national platform. Mark and Diana Esho.

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.

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.

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 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.
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.
