We are seeking very special people (or teams) who have made or are making the difference to the lives of children. We are also seeking children who have shown strength and determination and kept going with their treatment, when it might have been so much easier to give up.
If you know someone then please nominate them today for a Scottish Children’s Health Award. These awards have been created to celebrate those who are making a difference to the health and wellbeing of children and young people in Scotland. There are six specific award categories and nominations can be made until 5:00pm on 12 July 2020. The Awards will be presented during Scottish Children’s Health Week (31 August to 6 September 2020).
