About the awards
Welcome to the home of the Child of Wales Awards, a very special annual event that celebrates the inspirational achievements of the young people of Wales, while raising money for charities in Wales dedicated to helping children.
From Child of Wales came the inception of the National Children’s Awards Ltd, dedicated to recognising the achievements of extraordinary children across the nation.
“We’re delighted to be supporting the Child of Wales Awards for a second year, this time as their headline sponsor. We are looking forward to meeting more of these inspirational and courageous children next March. I’m especially delighted that our two charity partners at Ty Hafan and Hope House Ty Gobaith will benefit from fundraising from this great event.”
