Vote – Give ’em Hope Campaign (Community Organisation Award – Multi-Strand)


The National Diversity Awards in association with Microsoft has quickly evolved into the UK’s Largest Diversity Awards ceremony, gaining support from celebrities and top employers such as Lloyds Banking Group, MI5, Sky, PwC and the Financial Ombudsman Service.

A collection of some of Britain’s most inspirational and selfless people gather each year to honour the rich tapestry of our nation. The prestigious black tie event, hosted by Brian Dowling and Cerrie Burnell, showcases the extraordinary work of those who have demonstrated their outstanding devotion to enhancing equality, diversity and inclusion.

So, if you wish to nominate us for any of these awards or wish to put forward an individual or our campaign, I hope that you will take advantage of this opportunity.

The statement you may tailor to your own words may include such comments as: The campaign began on facebook and youtube and now covers all social media and has many strands to offer support and validation to anyone who may feel marginalised. The Give ’em Hope Campaign is an inclusive and inspirational celebration of diversity; an online video initiative to encourage and uplift those who feel marginalised, isolated or limited by labels. We exist to bring hope to those who need it most and do so by sharing our stories. The campaign was founded by David E Watters in early 2011 and has grown, with the support of numerous international cheerleaders and proactive participants.
This quiet, unassuming campaign has positively changed numerous lives across the globe.

Let’s raise our profile so that we can support even more people across the world.
