Sense Awards: it’s time to nominate people that shine in your life

Get ready to highlight a superstar in your life, because Sense is inviting the public to submit their nominations for the Sense Awards 2021.

The awards, run by national disability charity Sense, are the only national awards focusing on the achievements of people with complex disabilities and those that support them everyday.


Nominations for the awards are now open, allowing members of the public to submit their nominations for an array of categories. These include: person of the year; young sibling of the year; carer of the year; campaigner of the year; volunteer of the year.

The awards, which turn 18 this year, will celebrate people who go above and beyond to ensure people with complex disabilities don’t face isolation in life, or are left out.

You can nominate a star in your life until 31 August.


After nominations close, lucky winners will be announced in November and be presented with a coveted star-shaped award, highlighting the difference they have made.

“We’re delighted to invite nominations for the only national awards which focus on the achievements of people with complex disabilities, and those who support them, from volunteers and campaigners to extraordinary families and carers,” enthuses Richard Kramer, chief executive of the charity.

“The Sense Awards are an annual highlight for everyone at Sense and, after an extremely difficult year, it’s more important than ever to recognise the challenges that have been overcome and celebrate outstanding achievements.”

“We’re encouraging as many people as possible to submit their nominations for this year’s Sense Awards and we’d love the readers of Enable to get involved,” adds Richard. “If you know someone who should be recognised, please make a nomination before 31 August.”
