Prospero Inclusive Theatre Company director Beth Wood has been selected as a finalist for the 2023 BBC Make a Difference Awards.
The nomination reflects Beth’s work with Prospero, in Caterham, which she founded in 2015. It works with adults and young people with disabilities and mental health challenges, using drama and a range of social and creative activities to improve their quality of life.
“It’s always wonderful to be put forward for an award for anything, but to be nominated for making a difference to the lives of people with challenges is really special. The whole team of people at Prospero is incredible. We have worked to build a real community, often referred to as the Prospero family. We see every day what can be achieved when people are valued and given a voice.”
Beth is a finalist in the Together section of the Make a Difference Awards. The ceremony will be held on Monday, 25 September. Interviews with the nominees can be heard on BBC Radio Surrey, BBC Radio Sussex and BBC Sounds.
