The Awards, established in 2012, showcase the outstanding work undertaken by individuals across a variety of work sectors and services, which support and advance inclusion, cohesion and diversity within our borough. They also inspire and motivate us to continue working together to make Rochdale a place where everyone feels welcomed, valued and respected.
