The national disability charity, Sense, is inviting the public to submit their nominations for the Sense Awards 2021, the only national awards that celebrate the achievements of children, young people and adults with complex disabilities.

The awards, which turn 18 this year, also recognise the members of the public that have gone above and beyond to ensure people with complex disabilities are not left out of life, from the volunteers to the campaigners, fundraisers to organisations, as well as the extraordinary families and carers.  

Throughout August, the public, and those in the disability sector, will be encouraged to put forward their nominations for an array of different categories, including ‘Person of the Year’, ‘Young Sibling of the year’, ‘Carer of the Year’, ‘Campaigner of the Year’ and ‘Volunteer of the Year’.

Sense Chief Executive Richard Kramer said:

“The Sense Awards are a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the outstanding achievements of children, young people and adults with complex disabilities, and the people who support them in their day-to-day lives.

“The pandemic has been an incredibly challenging time for many people with complex disabilities, and their families, and it’s more important than ever to celebrate the challenges that have been overcome and the achievements.

“If you know someone who should be recognised, then please make a nomination to ensure that they’re recognised.”

Winners of the Sense Awards 2021 will be announced in November. The public has until August 31st to submit their nominations via the Sense website: www.sense.org.uk/sense-awards
