ECOM Maria José Vázquez Personal Independence Awards

To celebrate its 40th anniversary, ECOM, an associative movement comprising organisations of physically disabled people, has announced the María José Vázquez Personal Independence Awards, which recognise the work undertaken by individuals, organisations, institutions and businesses to facilitate the personal independence of physically disabled people. The awards are named after the former president of the organisation, and they represent an acknowledgement of her pioneering work and leadership in promoting the personal independence of physically disabled people. The awards, for which any organisation, company or institution within Spanish boundaries can apply, are divided into three categories: • Innovation Innovative initiatives within the realm of innovation and development or any other which, without being related to technological issues, incorporate innovative concepts in their development and apply to any aspect of daily life. • Social protection Initiatives which aim to communicate and disseminate the concept of personal independence, self-determination and independent living, which guarantee full participation in society for physically disabled people, to the general public. • Equal opportunities Initiatives which foster equality of opportunity for physically disabled people in all areas contributing to personal development: employment, education, health, leisure, housing, accessibility… Nominations for these awards may be presented by third parties until 27 September.
