The tireless support of family carers is often transformative and empowering for the person who is supported, but is rarely recognised formally. This award is for a family carer who deserves to be celebrated for their dedication and commitment to caring for a loved one who has learning disabilities.
For this category, the judges will be looking for nominations which fit the following criteria:
- Evidence and give examples of when the carer has gone above and beyond in their caring role
- Demonstrate how the carer’s actions and/or support have an impact on the person being cared for and/or others in a similar position
- Provide examples when the carer has demonstrated positivity in the face of challenges encountered.
