No child should have to face adversity, illness or disability.

The Annual Children’s Awards recognises the efforts and achievements of courageous children, their families and the charities that support them. Together with Kent Online, we celebrate this tribe of brave and inspiring youngsters who have achieved in music, sport or the arts -- children who have undertaken an extraordinary act of bravery or courageous families which are enduring illness or disability.

We have six awards open for nomination
