Family Carer Award

The award

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.

Helpful information

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.
