NILA Awards Categories
These are the categories for our 6th National Independent Living Awards. This year the four categories are based on Breakthrough’s Mission and Aims – Influencing, Providing, Enabling and Working. Each category is sponsored and judged by individuals who are well known in the Third Sector.
Providing greater choice, control and independent living
This will be awarded to an organisation that can evidence a service / product or approach that has offered real choice and control for disabled people to achieve, or move towards independent living.
Judge: Asif Iqbal MBE
‘Using British Sign Language as a first language has its challenges across every aspect of life, from shopping to using health services, accessing leisure facilities or contacting emergency services. Innovative solutions that some service providers have developed over the past few years have enabled Deaf and disabled people to truly begin to take control of our own lives. Tell us about the work you are doing to provide greater independence, choice and control for disabled people – we want to recognise your good work.‘ – Asif Iqbal MBE
