We are delighted to announce that we will be working with My Family Our Needs and Bringing Us Together to sponsor the BAPS Awards in May.
The BAPS celebrate SEND bloggers, recognise their valuable contribution to raising awareness of additional needs, both within the SEND community and wider society. Here’s Joe to explain why we got involved:
“The support and guidance provided to families to children in need of extra support by these bloggers is invaluable. The writers are parents of SEND children themselves who volunteer their time, experience and skills to help others and raise awareness.
“The difference this online support makes cannot be overstated. Whole communities from all over the world are formed through these blogs. These writers reassure, advise, share, laugh and cry together with their readers through each other’s journeys.
They are a true definition of Hidden Heroes and it’s our pleasure to be part of these awards.”
And here’s a few words from Lisa at Care Choices, who organise the awards:
“We take nominations for each award which are then passed on to our judging panel who shortlist 4 finalists for each category. These finalists then go back out to the public vote with the winner being announced at the ceremony.
When people are nominated we ask those who are making the nomination to give us some reasons why they are doing so, some of the notes we receive are really amazing and demonstrate just what a difference these bloggers make to peoples lives on a daily basis.”

The BAPS take place on the 17th May. We can’t wait!
