Diamond Awards – Nominations

We are delighted to announce that our 30th Anniversary year will culminate with our fantastic Diamond Awards Gala.  This exclusive awards ceremony evening takes place on March 4th 2022 at the Hilton Doubletree Oxford Belfry, in the region where our wonderful charity was established.

The evening will be a celebration of those individuals and teams who’ve gone above and beyond to help the Child Brain Injury Trust meet our goals and enabled us to support many thousands of families.  Commending these individuals and organisations will be an exciting, emotional and rewarding experience; reflecting on the last 30 years whilst also looking into the future.

We are throwing our doors open and encouraging shortlisted awards entrants and our wider ‘family’ alike to join us for the evening and to pay tribute to some very special individuals and teams.

Diamond Award Categories and Criteria

Hospital Team Award

This award is for a team or hospital that has supported and worked with the charity either in the past, or is currently working with us, to help advance and improve support services for families affected by ABI so that the emerging needs of CYP are appropriately met.  This could be a new or improved pathway, or creation of a clearer team approach to achieve care excellence, for example.

Nominations can be made by the hospital, CBIT team, supporters and professionals.  The team should be able to demonstrate their commitment to the charity and to the families we support over a number of years, and clearly outline how they have advocated for the long-term support needs of CYP with ABI.  Teams can be from any hospital and any department, private or NHS.

*Please note that families cannot nominate this award as we want to award a hospital team who has impacted many families and worked with the charity to further our work.

Corporate Supporter Award

This award is for an organisation or company that has demonstrated impactful support for the charity.  Nominees will need to clearly demonstrate how the corporate has supported the charity and what tangible impact that support has had for the Child Brain Injury Trust.  The award entry should also provide context about the corporate supporter’s journey with us; when they became involved with CBIT and importantly, why they became involved with CBIT.

We are looking for nominations from the organisations themselves, or from anyone else associated with the organisation or company.  We would also like to see evidence of how that support has impacted the corporate’s business; has there been a development of the team, an increase in business for them, a better and more cohesive approach to CSR, or something completely different?

Outstanding Family Award

This award is for a family the Child Brain Injury Trust has supported in the past or present.  They will have shown resilience, pulled together as a family and have a story they are willing to share.

Members of the CBIT team can nominate families for this award, but they must have agreement from the family.  The entry should offer information about the family’s circumstances prior to receiving support from CBIT; tell us about how the family became aware of CBIT, what support they received and how that support had a transformational impact for their family.  We want to hear about the family’s journey and what interventions the charity has made, in order to carve a better future for the family.

The winning family must be able to attend the awards event on the 4th March 2022 in Oxfordshire.

Young Achiever for Inspiration and Impact Award

This award is to celebrate a young person who has been impacted by ABI in the past or is currently being impacted.  They may have an ABI themselves or be a sibling of a child or young person with an ABI.  They must be willing to share their story and demonstrate how they have adapted and or supported the charity or others.  They should be inspirational and their story should be uplifting.

Members of the CBIT team can nominate a young person, but they must have agreement from the family/young person.  Young people can enter or be entered for this award up to the age of 30.  We are very keen to hear from young people, but they must have parental consent if under 18 years old.

The winning family must be able to attend the awards event on the 4th March 2022 in Oxfordshire.

Outstanding Individual Supporter Award
