The Accessible Britain Challenge Awards 2015

The Corporate Disability Access Forum  (CDAF) were the Winners in the ‘Improved Mobility’ category at the first Accessible Britain Challenge Awards which took place March 2015  in the House of Commons.   The Award was presented by the Minister of State for Disabled People, Mark Harper MP.

Mark and Lynda from Chester Adult Phab Club are members of the CDAF committee.

The Awards are intended to publicly recognise organisations that are making an outstanding contribution towards communities being accessible and inclusive.    The judges praised the work of the Forum in involving disabled people and their representative organisations in the design of major new public buildings and spaces, such as the Theatre and Library Project and Chester Bus Interchange.

Thanks were conveyed to DIAL West Cheshire for nominating CDAF for the Award, and also congratulate them on being Highly Commended for their ‘Safe in Town’ initiative which was shortlisted in the ‘Safer Neighbourhoods’ category but unfortunately was not selected as a winner.
