Nominations for the national disability awards open

Words by Abi Scaife

Nominations have opened for the 20th annual national disability awards

Great! What’s the story?

The Sense Awards, run by national disability charity Sense recognises the incredible achievements of people with complex disabilities and the people that support them.

It’s a great way to celebrate people in your community - from those with disabilities who have achieved something incredible this year, to a volunteer who works hard to give back.

How does it work?

The public can nominate people that they believe deserve an award via the Sense website. You have until September 1st to do it, though, so be quick!
