PaCC Awards 2021: Nominations are open!

We are very excited to announce that the nominations for the PaCC Awards 2021 are now open! The PaCC Awards are a way to say thank you to that special person or organisation who did that little bit extra for your family this year.  

The past few months have been very challenging for many families and we hope that among the stress, isolation and uncertainties you were able to find some great support from individuals, school staff, health care staff or other organisations. The extra help from those people and organisations – what we like to call ‘champions’ – can have such a positive impact on your child, to you and to your whole family.  

Do help us celebrate Brighton & Hove champions by using the form on this page, where you can find out about previous years’ winners , the diverse range of work they do and also information on how we organise the PaCC Awards. 

The annual event will take place sometime in January or February 2022. 

Deadline for nominations is 13 December 2021.

    I would like to nominate Lynne Halls, from Homewood college, an SEMH school in brighton and hove. Lynne has been working there for over 17 years. She is the most kind,caring and generous person you’ll ever meet. I attend Homewood, in year 11, last year i was beyond struggling with my mental health, and with the great support from Lynne, and others i am now back in school! Lynne even used her own evening to support me at a college open evening as i was very nervous. Lynne made this experience alot easier and reassured me the whole way through. Everyone student and member of staff would agree when i say she more then deserves this award.

    I want to nominate my daughter Ceydas PA Beth Mitchell. Ceydas mum is normally more involved in this side of Ceydas life but when Ceyda took really ill and ended up in hospital we all would have been lost without her. After she stayed in the hospital with Ceyda for the week I took her up and home every day when she gave Kerry a break and she was amazing at supporting me and explaining everything to me as due to covid restrictions only one parent was allowed with Ceyda. Beth is amazing and I can see how much Ceyda loves her and how much she helps Kerry physically and emotionally

    I would like to nominate both Ceydas Physio Lydia Growns and her OT Diana Sarunic. They have worked so much together to help Ceyda when she first fell ill and they have continued to help behind the scenes taking pressure off me by contacting specialists Paediatricians on my behalf. They are an amazing pair who have went above and beyond their daily jobs.
