About usWho we are and what we do
Anna Kennedy Online Charity created the Autism Hero Awards as an opportunity to showcase and celebrate the excellence taking place in the world of Autism. This is a unique opportunity to celebrate and showcase accomplishments as well as enhancing Autism awareness and acceptance.
The Autism Hero Awards was handed over to Anna Kennedy OBE by its founder Jo Kirton Salmon in 2016 where Anna presented the awards for Wales. Jo wanted to hand over the awards to Anna, so she could expand the event and share the event further.
Every year, we seek to acknowledge the outstanding contributions and achievements of individuals, teams and organisations who have proved excellence, dedication, and commitments to impacting lives that have been making a real difference in the world of autism. This honourable occasion is a unique opportunity to acknowledge the outstanding contributions and achievements of individuals, teams and organisations who have proved excellence, dedication, and commitments to impacting lives that have been making a real difference.
Anna Kennedy OBE shared:
“The Autism Hero Awards recognise the extraordinary achievements of people that show dedication, commitment and courage of all the nominees and winners is inspirational. The awards are a fantastic way to celebrate these accomplishments and unforgotten heroes and what life changing impacts are made on people’s lives”.
