We are proud to have been nominated for a National Diversity Award 2022 in recognition of our tireless commitment to ending violence against women and girls and support of anyone affected by domestic abuse and sexual violence.

Over 90% of those we supported felt safer, more confident and had an improvement in their well-being as a result. 96% of our stakeholders told us that our services were open and inclusive.

Nominated for a Community Organisation Award for Gender, this award applauds groups, charities and voluntary organisations that have made an outstanding contribution to their local community, with diversity as their core focus. The National Diversity Awards, in association with ITV News, is the UK’s most prestigious diversity event that celebrates the achievements of grass-roots communities tackling issues in today’s society, providing recognition for organisations and individuals dedication and hard work.

Sarah Hill, IDAS CEO says,

“We are passionate about improving the experience and safeguarding of all victims and, in addition to our work with women and girls, we are proud to support anyone who is impacted by domestic abuse or sexual violence. Through our community support teams we have supported hundreds of male, trans and non-binary victims. We have also increased our accommodation so that we can safely accommodate victims who need to escape abuse but who cannot access a women’s refuge. Our services are life-changing, and often lifesaving, for those we support”.

Winning the award would recognise our contribution to furthering gender equality locally and nationally and improve our ability to influence policy and legislation.

Please vote for us and encourage friends and family to vote as well.

Nominations and voting close on 20th May, with the shortlisted nominees attending the awards ceremony in September at the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral. To vote for IDAS, visit the National Diversity Awards website.
