Staff team that have gone above and beyond winners

Diverse Abilities Thank Inspirational People

Diverse Abilities has launched its second ‘Awards and Thank You Reception’ to acknowledge the inspirational people that are connected to the Dorset-based charity that supports children and adults with profound learning and physical disabilities in the county.

Anyone and everyone in Dorset can nominate an inspiring person or group that is either a Diverse Abilities fundraising enthusiast, an employee, a volunteer or an adult, child or family supported by the charity.

The ‘Awards and Thank You Reception’ categories include Employee Lifetime Achievement; Corporate Supporter; Volunteer Team; Individual Volunteer of the Year; Outstanding Voluntary Contribution; Individual Fundraiser of the Year; Child, young person or adult the charity supports who’s achieved something remarkable and staff member or team who has gone above and beyond.

Charlotte Curtis, head of business resources at Diverse Abilities, said: “We see the great job that our staff do day-in day-out, how committed our volunteers and supporters are to the charity and the achievements that the people we support accomplish and therefore wanted to express how thankful we are to them all for being such inspirational people. If you know of anyone that fits into one of the categories, please put them forward and help them realise how fantastic they are.”

The deadline for nominations is Monday 16 March and a panel of judges will choose the finalists, which will be invited to an awards reception at Kinson Community Centre on Thursday 30 April.
