My Family, Our Needs and Bringing Us Together have been closely monitoring the current coronavirus situation and made the decision to postpone the BAPS Awards to a date later in the year.
We know parents and carers of vulnerable young people have to be extremely vigilant when it comes to coronavirus. There has also been a lot of talk on social media about the lack of provision in place for parents and carers of disabled children if they were to become ill or have to self-isolate.
As our Awards brings together parents, carers and those who support families with disabled children, we feel it would be irresponsible and unsafe to go ahead with the event as the current situation stands. We are exploring new dates and will update you all as soon as we can. There is still time to vote for your favourites as the voting doesn’t close until tonight!
Thank you for your understanding and continued support. We look forward to quieter, calmer times and a huge celebration of all our amazing finalists.
