By awarding children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, as well as the people who support them.
By helping to build social and professional networks across the education, health and social care sectors.
By recognising and valuing determination, progress and achievement through revealing and celebrating stories of everyday life
The Generation CAN Awards are local awards to celebrate the remarkable achievements of children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities and the adults who support them.
In our children's awards categories, nominees selected and put forward by education, health and social care professionals involved with the child, the winners will be those who have made inspiring progress for them which is perhaps life-changing, as well as encouraging for others.
In our other awards categories, we want to recognise and celebrate the tremendous efforts and determination by professionals and parents, carers and young carers who provide inspirational support and care for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
Our intention is to celebrate, encourage and empower people, whatever their age, to continue to stand up for the beauty and value of diversity.
This year, the awards took place at The Worcester Arena on Thursday 12th July 2018 at 7pm. 2019 nominations are now open.
