What is the Carer Friendly Communities Awards Ceremony?
The awards ceremony is a chance for you to say a special “thank you” to someone who has gone the extra mile to support you in your caring role.
Carers can nominate anyone who they think has helped to make their lives easier, or made an outstanding contribution to carers. This could be: a local community group or organisation, a local business, a GP, a social worker, or an individual member of the community.
2019 Carer Friendly Communities Awards Ceremony - calling all carers to nominate!
Do you know someone who has gone the extra mile to help make things easier for you as a carer? Or do you know someone who has helped other carers in your community? This could be: a local community group or organisation, a local business, a GP, a social worker, or an individual member of the community.
To nominate someone who has gone the extra mile, download and fill in a Nomination Form 2019. Closing date for nomination is Friday 17 May 2019.
Please note: we cannot accept nominations for a close relative or for a member of staff from Newcastle Carers.
We will be hosting the Carer Friendly Awards Ceremony on Thursday 13 June, 12noon - 3:00pm at the Discovery Museum in the Great Hall. Download the awards ceremony poster to find out more.
