New award for family bloggers

We are sponsoring new awards for blogs by parents of children with additional needs. Our Managing Director Sarah Maguire will be one of the judges.

My Family Our Needs has launched the BAPs Awards to celebrate bloggers from SEND families (families with children with special educational needs and disability), saying: 

“…there are loads of blogging awards, so why do we need another one? Well, none of those awards recognise parents and carers of children with additional needs. This needs to change. If mainstream blogging awards do include SEND bloggers, they tend to be put into the ‘inspiring’ categories. Honestly, most parents tire of being inspirational.”

Sarah Maguire, Choice Support's Managing Director says “it’s about time all the awesome parents out there are recognised for their powerful, insightful and poignant blogs that stimulate discussion to make us think and challenge the status quo. I know judging of these awards will be an absolute joy’’

You can make your nominations now within six categories that include “The truth about SEND” and “SEND with a side dish of humour”. Entries close by 18th November.

Sally Phillips will be hosting the award ceremony on the 18th May 2017.
