Date published: 09 July 2019

Personal Independence Payment Professionals from Rochdale have been shortlisted for the Community Organisation Award for Disability at the National Diversity Awards 2019. 

Cat Gillett LL.B (hons) Pg Dip Law, Personal Independence Payment Professionals Director said: “This is such a prestigious award, we are extremely humbled to have made the shortlist.  

“Thank you once again for everyone's support on our journey so far, we wouldn’t be here without the fantastic network of people that we have around us.”

Over 28,000 people have been nominated this year alone and the results are finally in for the National Diversity Awards (NDA), with an astonishing 124 nominees being recognised for their various achievements nationwide.

Community organisations and role models from across the UK will be at Liverpool Anglican Cathedral on 20 September to witness the 2019 winners being crowned.

Paul Sesay, Founder and CEO of the National Diversity Awards said: “A record number of nominations and votes were received this year, the most we have ever received. I know our judging panel had an incredibly difficult task of whittling down the nominees to create an outstanding shortlist.

“So many heartfelt testimonies really showcased how these people and organisations are having a profound impact on the lives of others, and I applaud them for their dedication to each specific cause.

“Congratulations to all of our shortlisted nominees, it is a privilege to recognise your bravery, resilience and courage and I am honoured to share this with the nation. I look forward to congratulating you in person in September.”
