Revealed: Finalists of our Autism Professionals Awards 2020
Published on 23 January 2020
We are pleased to announce the finalists of our 2020 Autism Professionals Awards. Congratulations to the 36 people, teams and organisations who have been shortlisted. And thank you to everyone who submitted a nomination.
Our annual awards recognise people, services and schools across the UK who are making a difference to autistic people and their families. The winners will be announced at a special ceremony on 27 February 2020 at Birmingham Town Hall, following the first day of our Professionals Conference.
Our finalists were shortlisted by an independent panel of autism specialists, who were looking for high standards of innovation, creativity, impact and sustainability. By celebrating their achievements, we hope to increase public understanding of autism and inspire other people and organisations to make a difference too. There are 12 awards for individuals and organisations, covering education, health, social care, employment, and volunteering.
Carol Povey, Director of the National Autistic Society’s Centre for Autism, said: “Our awards celebrate exceptional people, schools and services making a huge difference to autistic children and adults, and their families.
“All the finalists should be commended for impressing the judges and standing out among so many excellent nominations.
“We want to celebrate their achievements and share their stories, so we can promote innovative autism practice and inspire other people and organisations to help create a society that works for autistic people."
