This award recognises the transformative and empowering relationship between the family carer(s) and the person being cared for. The tireless support of family carers makes a world of difference to the life of the family member being cared for and yet is rarely recognised formally. This is your opportunity to nominate a family carer and the person with a learning disability who is cared for; they are there for each other through the good times and the tougher times.
Please note this award is for a family carer(s) and the person being cared for. To celebrate the dedication, commitment and love in caring for a loved one who has a learning disability.
Please write your nomination and evidence the criteria below. The judges will be scoring the nomination against this criteria.
Bring the person(s) story to life:
- Tell us about the care and support that the carer(s) provides to their family member with a learning disability
- Demonstrate how the carer(s) actions and/or support have made a difference to the life of the person being cared for
- Provide examples of how the carer(s) and the person being cared for have demonstrated positivity in the face of challenges encountered
- Tell us about any times when the carer(s) has supported others who are in a similar caring role
