nasen Award

6th October 2023, The Grand Hotel, Birmingham 

The nasen Awards recognise and honour outstanding individuals and organisations that have made significant contributions to promoting and advancing inclusion. They provide an opportunity to highlight the often-unrecognised work of those who have shown a commitment to striving for, enabling, and creating environments that are welcoming and supportive to all, regardless of their abilities, backgrounds, or circumstances.

Join us as we celebrate the achievements of all of those across the country and internationally who are working to break down barriers and create more inclusive schools and communities, and to inspire others to join the movement for inclusion by design.
