The BACD executive committee has decided that the pre-conference dinner at the annual conference 2020 will now encompass a Gala Dinner and a formal launch to celebrate the organisation becoming a charity. In addition, we plan to recognise the achievements of professionals working in paediatric disability in the UK, disabled young people and their families.
We plan to present six awards, followed by some music and fun into the night. We will also celebrate graduates from the Sheffield Diploma course. The awards are:
Inspiring young person in 2019
Inspiring parent carer in 2019
Inspiring sibling in 2019
Inspiring professional in 2019
Best photo or picture to capture ethos of BACD award 2019
Lifetime Achievement Award
