Carer Friendly Communities Awards Ceremony 2019

The annual Carer Friendly Communities Awards Ceremony is an opportunity for carers to nominate an individual, group or business for an award, to recognise and celebrate the positive difference they have made - a chance to say “thank you”. This could be: a helpful neighbour, an employer supporting a carer to work flexibly, a professional such as a teacher, doctor, or social worker who has gone the extra mile to support a carer.   

We're hosting our fantastic Carer Friendly Communities Awards Ceremony on Thursday 13 June, 12noon - 3:00pm at the Discovery Museum, in the Great Hall (Blandford Square, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 4JA).

See our awards ceremony poster.

All carers and guests welcome. For more information about the Carer Friendly Communities Awards Ceremony, including letting us know that you would like to attend, please contact us.


The Carer Friendly Communities Awards Ceremony forms part of our Carers Week 2019 celebrations and awareness raising activities. Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK. This year Carers Week will take place from 10 to 16 June.
