TripleC Disability Access Outfit Wins BAFTA Honor


REWARDS

Triple-Ca gateway organization that helps deaf, disabled and neurodiverse people access the arts and media, will receive a BAFTA TV Craft Special Award at the British Academy Television Craft Award. Actor cherylee houston (“Coronation Street”) founded TripleC and with a group of friends including Melissa Johns (“Grantchester”), they built a platform to make the creative screen industry more inclusive.

Johns and Houston said, “When we started this organization five years ago, we were just a bunch of creatives with and without disabilities coming together to see if we could make a difference. I don’t think we ever knew the magnitude of the impact this seed of an organization would have on the lives of so many Deaf, disabled, and/or neurodivergent creatives. Recognition from BAFTA will support our drive for change and help ensure that accessibility and inclusivity feature prominently in all programs.

Sara Putt, BAFTA Television Committee Chair and BAFTA Vice-Chair, said, “Cherylee and Melissa have used their platform for Deaf, Disabled and/or Neurodivergent creators in the arts and gone above and beyond to improve the access, opportunities and representation. Although there is still a long way to go, TripleC’s creative approach has had a significant impact on BAFTA.

This year’s BAFTA TV Craft Awards will take place at The Brewery in London in an in-person ceremony on April 24 and will be hosted by the actor, comedian and TV presenter Mel Giedroy.
