Celebrating the achievements of people with disabilities

Do you know someone with a disability who has overcome difficulties to make positive choices around keeping safe; or becoming healthier; or who has taken up a new activity to be more mobile?

Or, maybe you know someone whom, despite their own challenges, regularly carries out acts of kindness to make a difference to someone else’s life. Or perhaps you know a disabled person who, when faced with many difficulties, remains positive and brave.

The achievements of people with disabilities often go unrecognised and if the above describes someone you know, we would love to hear from you.

Our dedicated diverse communities team has joined with some of our partner agencies to develop BASH awards. These aim to recognise the positive efforts disabled people make to be more Active, keep Safe and take up a Healthy lifestyle.

Nomination forms can be found on our website at www.devon-cornwall.police.uk (search for BASH).

But please don’t delay as the closing date for nominations is Monday 6th February.

The seven categories include:

  1. Making healthy choices
  2. Taking up a new sport or activity
  3. Learning and achievement
  4. Act of bravery
  5. Act of kindness
  6. Keep safe ambassador
  7. Community champion (volunteer)

Nominations are open to any disabled person, of any age, who lives in Devon. Anyone is welcome to nominate a disabled person they feel should be awarded.

The awards have been funded by Devon Link-UP, ROC Active, South Devon & Torbay Clinical Commissioning Group and Devon and Cornwall Police.
