The Shine a Light Awards was launched in 2011, in partnership with The Communication Trust as part of 'Hello', the national year of communication campaign.
Each year, we invite individuals and organisations to share their approach to innovation and best practice; the impact their work has had and why speech, language and communication needs are important to them. For over six years, the awards have been successful, in bringing to the forefront the outstanding achievement of more than 100 leading organisations and individuals.
