The Awards are run by a charitable trust, which seeks to increase awareness of the benefits of the integration of people with disabilities into every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life. 

The Attitude Awards are operated by The Attitude Trust.



Trustees include: Hon. Ruth Dyson, Stacey Roche, David Rutherford, Richard Barker, Robyn Scott-Vincent MNZOM and Dan Buckingham.



Proceeds from the Attitude Awards go towards helping students who live with disability study for a role in the media. Applications for the Attitude Trust Scholarship open in September 2018.
