The Rotary Club of Oldham is pleased to announce that Inclusive Technology, based in Delph, has won the Community Service Shield for 2009. This is the tenth year of awards for companies who, in the opinion of the Rotary Club of Oldham's selection panel, have given outstanding community service to the community of Oldham and beyond.

The shield was presented at a meeting of the Club's members at Smokies Park Hotel in Oldham to Martin Littler, the Chairman and a founder of Inclusive Technology.

As mentioned above this is the tenth year of the award, which was the joint brainchild of the Rotary Club of Oldham's Ray Coverley and Chairman and Managing Director of Admiral Leasing, Phillip Webb, who very kindly sponsored the shield. They both agreed this award would help to recognise the efforts and achievements of local businesses in supporting both their local community and the wider area, at home and overseas.

Ray Coverley, project Co-ordinator and Past President of the Rotary Club said: "The club is grateful to Phillip Webb and his board for supporting the rotary club of Oldham with this award. Some of Oldham's best known companies have been presented with the award for the last ten years. Oldham Athletic became the inaugural winner in 2000 followed by the "Chron" the following year. Other winners to receive this coveted award are McDonald Taylor Royton 2002, BAE Systems 2003, Warburton's 2004, Worlds Fair 2005, Zetex Semiconductors 2006, Street College (Keith Lucas) 2007, and last year's winners were Trinity Mirror Printing."

The Rotary Club of Oldham are grateful to Martin Torr, the Chronicle's Business Editor, Ground Work Trust and the Oldham Chamber of Commerce for their help and contributions in making this award what it is today.

Martin Littler said: "I am delighted to receive this award from the Rotary Club. It is a pleasure to be based in the beautiful Saddleworth area of Oldham and even better to be able to put something back - to support the local community as well as national initiatives to help children with special needs."

Inclusive Technology provides the software and hardware that helps those with special needs to live, learn and communicate. They are the recognised world leader in software that can be accessed using simple switches, so that children with severe physical and cognitive difficulties can join in. Martin founded the company in 1996 along with colleagues and friends who were all experienced practitioners in using technology to support special learners.

The company has taken part in many initiatives over the years, including charitable donations, supporting conferences to spread good practice internationally, providing essential equipment for children with speech difficulties in China and supporting teachers and schools, among others. The company recently developed special software featuring Bob the Builder with all proceeds going to Manchester's New Children's Hospital Appeal. This switch accessible software is on target to raise £50,000 before the Appeal closes this year.
