Asmodee’s Green Board Games Co. has announced that it is sponsoring The Autism Hero Awards again this year, in support of the Anna Kennedy Online (AKO) Charity.

The awards take place on November 9th at the Chelsea Harbour Hotel, and recognise the outstanding contributions and achievements of individuals, teams and organisations working across the autistic spectrum. As part of its continued support of AKO, Green Board Games Co. will be sponsoring the Sibling of the Year Award this year. This accolade acknowledges those who have taken action to support autistic siblings, or increase awareness of autism with their attitude and empathy.

Asmodee’s Green Board Games has always been an advocate of inclusive play, creating educational games that can be adapted for all ages and abilities. These include the award-winning and globally acclaimed BrainBox range; based on simple gameplay to evoke memory and learning patterns, the range offers in excess of 80 titles, distributed across more than 60 countries and in over 30 languages.

Karen Nunn, marketing consultant and creator of the Inclusive Play concept at Green Board Games, said: “We are extremely excited to be sponsoring The Autism Hero Awards, in particular the Sibling of the Year Award. We are delighted to be supporting the Anna Kennedy Online Foundation in its work to enhance autism awareness and acceptance – something we at GBG have always taken great pride in appreciating.”

Anna Kennedy, founder of the AKO autism charity, said of Green Board Games’ continued sponsorship: “As a charity we are reliant on our sponsors to help us to raise further awareness of autism, and we are delighted to have been able to work with Green Board Games over the years. Its continued support helps us to achieve our goal of increasing the number of opportunities for individuals on the autism spectrum and enhancing the wider understanding of autism.”
