nasen Awards

All the latest information and announcements for the annual nasen awards celebratory ceremony and dinner 

Each year, nasen are host to an annual awards campaign, which looks to celebrate the achievements of individual and organisations within the SEND sector. We round off the campaign with a special banqueting ceremony, which takes place in October, in central London.

2020 Update

Due to the current circumstances surrounding Covid-19 we have decided to cancel this year’s ceremony.

We have received a record number of nominations from across the globe, and so to ensure that these organisations and individuals get the recognition they deserve, we will be moving our celebration online. This will include a video announcement of this year’s winners on a dedicated page below and a social media campaign using #nasenwinners2020.
