Speaking of the award, Ian Thornley said: “I am delighted to receive this award. It has been a privilege to work with some wonderful people at Remploy who are dedicated to making a transformational difference to the lives of people with disabilities through employment and I look forward to continuing this important work with my equally dedicated colleagues at Equal Approach.”
Equal Approach CEO, Dawn Milman-Hurst said: “It’s absolutely fantastic that Ian has been recognised with this OBE for services to disabled people. He is a worthy recipient of this award, who has contributed a significant amount of his career to making a difference through employment for those that all too often face barriers.”
