Following the great success of the 2016 Scottish Sensory Awards I am delighted to confirm that the Scottish Council on Visual Impairment (SCOVI), and the Scottish Council on Deafness (SCOD), as the umbrella organisations for sight and hearing loss in Scotland, have taken on the responsibility for the organisation of the 2017 awards.

awardsFollowing our learning from last year, we have now refined the categories, reducing them to six, and now including one particularly for children & young people.

As happened this year all nominations will be scrutinised and a short list drawn up for each of the 6 categories. All short listed nominations will be invited to the awards ceremony, where the winners in each category will be announced.

We are
delighted that Maureen Watt MSP, Minister for Mental Health and with portfolio responsibility for sensory impairment at the Scottish Government, has agreed to present the awards. 

The awards ceremony will again be held at the Stirling Court Hotel, and will be on 15 February 2017.

Nominations must be returned by Tuesday 10 January 2017, and all people will be contacted that week to confirm whether they have been shortlisted.
