No Barriers -The Mike Oborski Awards
What are the 'No Barriers' Awards?
The aim of ‘No Barriers’ the Mike Oborski Awards is to recognise local businesses, organisations and individuals that have provided significant access, service or employment possibilities for people with disabilities within the Wyre Forest district.
The awards also want to celebrate those who have given particular consideration for the wider needs of people within the community, for example, nursing mothers.
Applications are invited for those who go the extra mile for people when it's not part of their usual role.
We hope that by celebrating these achievements it will promote best practice and encourage others to do the same.
