Apply Now: The Catherine Capaldi Awards

Posted on: 03/12/2020 in Community , Resources , Training , COVID-19 Updates
The Catherine Capaldi Awards (for entrants from Camden and London wide) are open to anyone who identifies as a disabled person and who has an idea or solution to break down a barrier faced by disabled people or to improve their access to services, inclusion or community participation. The awards close for applications on Sunday 28 February 2021.

This year, we have all experienced barriers and restrictions that are out of our control – the Catherine Capaldi Awards are a chance for disabled people to imagine ways of getting rid of the barriers that they have to live with every single year. 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.
