This month sees the return of the BAPS (Bloody Awesome Parents) SEND Blog Awards, the first blog awards to recognise the work of parents and carers raising children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).  

The awards were established last year to fill the gap left by existing award shows, which often overlooked SEND bloggers’ stories, as well as their ability to raise awareness within the SEND community and wider society. 

This year’s awards will take place on Thursday 17th May, and will be hosted by former Blue Peter presenter Gethin Jones.

Like in 2017, Family Fund will be in attendance to help celebrate the nominees’ achievements, particularly those of our amazing Family Fund bloggers, with this year’s nominees including Faith MummyMama Unexpected and Joseph & His Amazing Spectrum Coat.

For 2018, the categories are:

-         Best Practical Advice for Families

-         Blogger Making a Difference

-         Blog Post that made the Biggest Impact

-         Microblogger

-         Most Entertaining Blog

-         Most Supportive SEND Blogger

-         Newcomer

Tickets are still available so book now. All tickets include drinks reception, three course meal, and a chance to meet Gethin Jones himself.
