We have been nominated for the Diverse Company of the Year at The 2015 National Diversity Awards. Musarat Asif has also been nominated for Positive Role Model of the Year, for her tireless hard work, passion and inspiration to others.
The ceremony celebrates some of the excellent and inspiring achievements of positive role models and community organisations from across the UK. The awards aim to recognise nominees in their respective fields of diversity including age, disability, gender, race, faith, religion and sexual orientation.
