We are proud to have been shortlisted in not one but TWO categories at this year’s Birmingham Awards, celebrating the very best achievers and influencers our home city!
NICE is shortlisted in the ‘Charity and Community’ category and our CEO, the incredible Dr Melanie Brown, is nominated in the ‘Contribution to Education’ category, in recognition for over 30 years of work in the special education sector.
Participant Esther Baston (pictured, centre) who kindly nominated NICE in the charity and community category, explains why:
“From when I was 3 years old, all the way to the present day, NICE has given me the confidence to have a go at new challenges and showed me that you don’t know if you can do something until you try. I am nominating NICE for charity of the year at 2016’s Birmingham Awards because they have made a difference to the lives of many disabled children and adults every day for the past 30 years and deserve to be celebrated along with the city’s best!”
Nominating Melanie Brown for her contribution to Education, Professor Alex Kendall of BCU said;
“Melanie’s life’s work in the field of Conductive Education has improved the lives of thousands of disabled children and adults, in Birmingham and beyond. Her work has also benefitted, students, carers, teachers, academics and fellow conductors, both in the UK and across the globe.”
