AVUK – Claire Campbell Outstanding achievement awards nomination period currently open

Posted in News

“Do you know a deaf child or young person, or adult supporting deaf children, who has gone above and beyond to raise the expectations of what deaf children can achieve?

Entries are now open for the first Claire Campbell Outstanding Achievement Awards recognising deaf children and young people, as well as adults, who have gone above and beyond to showcase what deaf children can achieve with early and effective support.

Claire was dedicated to supporting deaf children to have the same opportunities in life as their hearing peers. She was a committed ambassador of Auditory Verbal UK, as its Chair of Trustees from 2013 to 2020, and right up she passed away in November last year. As the mother of three children, two of whom are profoundly deaf and learnt to listen and talk at AVUK, Claire was, and remains, a source of inspiration to many families across the UK and internationally.

Announcing the awards, Claire’s husband Chris, said: “We want to recognise the outstanding achievement of other deaf children and individuals who support them just as Claire did. Please enter today so we can carry on recognising the amazing people, like Claire, who are helping transform lives of deaf babies and children every day.”
