We are looking for nominations for the Rowen Jade Award 2018.
This award is given annually to a Disabled person who lives in or near Bristol who has campaigned for the rights of Disabled people, or who has, by example, shown how Disabled people can play an active role in society.
Rowen Jade died in September 2010. She was a Disabled woman who worked tirelessly with and for Disabled people nationally and here in Bristol. Rowen was also a Forum Advisor, so we created this annual award in her memory.
The memorial bowl, engraved with the name of each year’s winner, will be presented at our AGM later this year.
Could it be you or someone you know this year?
To nominate someone for this award, please contact the Forum with the name of your nominee, a seconder and some information on what the person being nominated has done.
