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

The awards event take place on November 9 at the Chelsea Harbour Hotel and is a celebration to recognise the contributions and achievements of individuals, teams and organisations working across the 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 increased awareness of autism by their attitude and empathy, aiding the dynamics experienced under challenging circumstances with selflessness and understanding

 Asmodee’s Green Board Games has always been advocates of inclusive play, creating educationally biased games that can be adapted for all ages and abilities; such as their award-winning and world-wide acclaimed BrainBox range, based on simple gameplay to evoke memory and learning patterns – now available in excess of 80 titles, distributed across more than 60 countries 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 and in particular the “Sibling of the Year Award”. 

“We are delighted to be supporting the Anna Kennedy Online Foundation through their plight to enhance autism awareness and  of course acceptance – something we at GBG have always taken great pride in appreciating. We are delighted to be able to reward those who have faced difficult challenges over the last year and those that have been committed to raising awareness with understanding.”

 Anna Kennedy, founder of the AKO autism charity, said of Green Board Games continued sponsorship: “As a charity we are reliant on our sponsor partners 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. Their continued support helps us to achieve our goal of increasing the number of opportunities for individuals on the autism spectrum and enhance the wider understanding of autism.”
