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 held our Carer Friendly Communities Awards Ceremony on Thursday 13 June at the Discovery Museum, in the Great Hall, and what a fantastic celebration it was!
The Carer Friendly Communities Awards Ceremony formed 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 took place from 10 to 16 June.
