Congratulations to GDI Hub for receiving a Provost's Public Engagement Awards

28 October 2020

The Global Disability Innovation Hub has won the Respond Award at the Provost’s Public Engagement Awards 2020, for their work with Motivation, a global disability charity and social enterprise, developing a new model for wheelchair provision in Kenya.

Albert McEyeson from Action Youth Boxing Intervention. Winner of the 2019 ‘Community Award’

Being awarded this prize is a celebration of the value of inclusive and responsive engagement, which is at the core of what GDI Hub does. 

UCL President & Provost Professor Michael Arthur commented on the Awards: 

"The value of this work is all the more important as we see communities around our campuses and across the globe where UCL research and teaching is embedded, being adversely impacted by the pandemic. These projects show that through genuine partnerships, which embody a spirit of experimentation and respond to communities’ needs, UCL can help make a tangible difference to people’s lives around the world."
