I am delighted to announce that Chase Against Crimes of Hate (CACH) has been shortlisted for the UK’s Largest Diversity Awards
CACH a local multi agency hate crime partnership covering Stafford and surrounding areas has been nominated for the Community Organisation Award Multi-Strand at The National Diversity Awards.
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.
Chair of CACH Hifsa Haroon-Iqbal said ‘I am absolutely delighted to hear that CACH has been recognised by the National Diversity Awards. It is testament to the leadership and determination shown by all the partner agencies to tackle hate crime wherever and however it occurs. I would like to pay a special tribute to our Co-ordinator Anna McLauchlan. Anna has taken CACH to a new level and whilst this nomination recognises the dedication of everyone involved, the Executive acknowledge that these achievements are very much down to the hard work and commitment shown by Anna over the last 18 months’.
The National Diversity Awards, to be held at the Queens Hotel on September 20th, will honour the outstanding achievements of grass root communities who have contributed to making a more diverse and inclusive society.
