We would like nothing more then to celebrate and recognise some amazing individuals this year however our priority is to our families, friends and colleagues during these uncertain times. Therefore the BAWP November Awards are postponed, we will continue to keep everyone updated.

It's OK not to be OK, please take a moment to check in with family and friends, asking for help is not a sign of weakness it's a sign of strength. #bethere #SuicidePrevention
