The awards close for applications on Sunday 28 February 2021.

In partnership with the Access and Inclusive Environments Team at Arup, Elfrida Rathbone Camden will be running several workshops to support potential applicants with their applications - the first one of these will be held on Thursday 21 January – more details to follow.

The first winners will be announced on 30th March 2021, and in addition to a cash award, the prizes will include support to develop and promote the best idea and opportunities for personal and professional development.

Catherine Capaldi was a tireless campaigner for access and inclusion in Camden who fought to raise awareness of the issues affecting young disabled people. Catherine passed away late in 2019 and in her memory and working with others who knew and valued her. Elfrida Rathbone Camden has created the Catherine Capaldi Awards to highlight and celebrate the achievements of individual disabled people.
