BAPs SEND Blog Awards 2021 logo

We are pleased to announce that Children’s Complex Care by Voyage Care are supporting this year’s 2021 Bloody Awesome Parents (BAPs) awards, by sponsoring the Newcomer Award!

Founded by Bringing Us Together and My Family Our Needs, the BAPs awards are the only dedicated Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) blogging awards to exist.

Each year the BAPs awards recognise outstanding parents and carers of children and young people with additional needs bloggers from the SEND community.

From parent bloggers, to individuals spreading awareness, the BAPs awards brings together incredible SEND champions from across the UK. And this year is no different.

Children’s Complex Care at Voyage Care are absolutely thrilled to be supporting such worthy awards. We need to recognise the unsung heroes out there! Without them, we would not have made the progress we have in SEND awareness and acceptance.
