Shine a Light Awards 2019


Celebrating excellence in speech, language and communication provision


We are taking a break....

We are sure that the Shine A Light Awards will be missed this year, but we have decided to take a break for 2020. Since 2012, the Shine A Light Awards have been the brightest platform for celebrating the inspirational work of all individuals providing commendable support to children and young people with communication difficulties in the UK. We now wish to further strengthen the pioneering groundwork and cultural impact that Shine A Light has made, and more importantly, continue to prioritise the exposure of excellence in the sector. In the meantime, stay shining, keep inspiring and we will be back soon!

What does communication mean to you? Watch the introduction to the 2019 Shine a Light Awards  



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.
