We've been nominated in the UK's Largest Diversity Awards

1st April 2022

We're delighted to announce that ADDvanced Solutions Community Network has been nominated in the Community Organisation Award for Disability at the National Diversity Awards 2022.  

The Breathtaking Liverpool Anglican Cathedral will play host to this year's awards, to be held on September 16th 2022. Britain's most inspirational and selfless people will come together to honour the rich tapestry of our nation, recognising individuals and groups from grassroots communities.

The prestigious black-tie event recognises nominees in their respective fields of diversity, including age, disability, gender, race, faith, religion and sexual orientation.

Vanda Reeves, ADDvanced Solutions Community Network Director said: "We are honoured and delighted to be nominated for these awards. Being amongst so many incredible organisations makes this recognition very special. It's a testament to the passion and commitment each member of our organisation has in working with families living with neurodevelopmental conditions."

ITV News will be working with The National Diversity Awards to highlight role models and community organisations on regional and national news channels.
Rachel Corp, Acting Editor, ITV News, said: "We are pleased that ITV News will again support the National Diversity Awards. ITV News remains committed to telling the stories of those, who through their work and dedication to helping others have made a difference; enhancing equality, diversity and inclusion in our society."

The UK's largest diversity awards has attracted a growing list of supporters, including Adam Hills, Graham Norton and Katie Piper. Last year's winner of the Celebrity of the Year gong, Sir Lenny Henry CBE said: "Diversity to me means involving everybody without any discrimination; it means having integrated groups in society, it means fairness and total inclusion, and that's what the National Diversity Awards are about. Congratulations to everyone who has been nominated, you're all doing a fantastic job, rock on!"

The National Diversity Awards receives over 60,000 nominations and votes annually. Founder & CEO Paul Sesay said, "As we enter our 11th awards season, The National Diversity Awards prepare to welcome a host of outstanding role models and charities to our family. We look to those who represent progress, spirit and resilience, and I cannot wait to learn about the wonderful work being carried out this year."

Clair Horrocks joined ADDvanced Solutions Community Network four years ago as a Community Network Champion, a group of volunteer parents and carers who support families based on their own experiences. After four years of training, Clair now manages and delivers coaching support to children and young people. 

Clair said: "I am delighted ADDvanced Solutions has been nominated for this award. I'm immensely proud to be a part of this team that reaches out to communities and works with families living with neurodevelopmental conditions, providing them with knowledge of these conditions and equipping them to find the tools themselves to support their child or young person."

Voting is now open and closes on May 20th 2022. Shortlisted nominees will be announced shortly after this date.
