Nominations close in this year's national awards!
It's not too late to make your nomination in the remaining categories in the 2013 Signature Annual Awards.
Do you know a shining star who is working hard to improve the lives of deaf and deafblind people? If so, we want to know them too.
We are pleased to announce the shortlists for the Teacher of the Year and Learner of the Year categories in the 2013 Signature Annual Awards.
This award recognises an organisation in the public, private or voluntary sector which, through leadership or endeavour, has made a significant contribution to achieving a society in which deaf and deafblind people have full access.
The Signature Annual Awards panel will consider the nominations you submit and announce a shortlist in summer 2013. The Organisational Achievement award will be presented at the evening awards ceremony in November.
Nominations for this award close on 26 June 2013.
"I would like to thank Signature for awarding the Organisational Achievement Award 2012 to Scottish Council on Deafness and for a wonderful evening at the ceremony in London. We never expected to be nominated for this – never mind to win! It is an honour for me and my Staff that you have recognised the hard work we do for deaf people in Scotland. I would like to dedicate the award to my small, very loyal and hardworking team. Thank you."
"We are delighted to win this award in marking our achievements in increasing access to the arts for deaf, deafened and hard of hearing people over the last 11 years. None of this would have been possible without the commitment of a dedicated Board of Trustees, an energetic staff team, and hundreds of theatres who care about their audiences and the thousands of caption users who continue to lobby for better access to cultural events. We thank Signature for this recognition and dedicate this award to Geoff Brown, one of our founders without whom STAGETEXT would never have been born."
"Our course is an important opportunity for medical students to develop deaf awareness and communication skills, and we are thrilled with this award."
"We are extremely proud to have recognition of initially being shortlisted, but to discover that we actually won the award is tremendous news for us. It is a great honour and fantastic recognition of the constabulary’s achievements to be acknowledged by Signature in making a significant contribution to a society where deaf people have full access."
