“ Being involved in and able to sponsor an award at the inaugural Autism Professional Awards was both an honour and a great pleasure. The professionals who work with youngsters and adults on the spectrum 24/7 are amazing- dedicated, caring and often under-valued... I hope we can help to make this event an annual highlight in our calendar.”

Axcis, 2017 Awards Sponsor

Room to Reward

Room to Reward' is a unique charity created to say 'thank you' to the Hidden Heroes – inspirational volunteers who truly make a difference to people in need. Our partner hotels donate their anticipated unsold rooms; our charity partners nominate their Hidden Heroes for a break – we make it happen!

From humble beginnings in 2015, we now partner with over 330 hotels throughout the U.K. More than 500 Hidden Heroes have been nominated for a well-earned break from over 250 charities.

Across the country, there are so many people giving up their time to help others. Room to Reward gives just a little bit of that time back to them.
