A Luton man with dyslexia has been nominated for a National Diversity Award after championing the rights of the disabled.
David Brady, 34, was diagnosed at the age of 17, but has gone on to forge a successful career with Network Rail and is a representative of transport union TSSC.
He is now been named as a nominee for the Positive Role Model - Disability Award at the 2015 National Diversity Awards, held in Liverpool in September.
And he needs as many online votes as possible to win it.
David, of Rutland Crescent, Luton, said: “I felt very honoured, it was big surprise and very unexpected.”
As part of his work, David carries out disability screenings with colleagues and recommends adjustments to assist them at work.
He said: “I have a very supportive wife, stepson and daughter who enable me to give my time to help and support my fellow employees.
“There are still challenges ahead. There’s been leaps and bounds in laws like the Equalities Act, but more work needs to be done to raise awareness.”
