Inspire Awards 2017 Nominations Open

Cardiff Against Bullying‘s Inspire Awards are looking for your nominations!

Want to say thank you to those who contribute positively in some way to the happiness, acceptance and security of others within our schools and our communities?

What are the Inspire Awards?

Celebrating the children, young people and adults who have the courage and strength of character to stand up for and/or befriend others who are being bullied, taunted, isolated and ignored by others – the Inspire Awards are open for nomination!

These acts of kindness towards people often go unrecognised but make all the difference to the lives of the people they help.
