Family Carer Award

The Award

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 a learning disability.

The tireless support of family carers is often transformative and empowering for the person with a learning disability who is supported, but is rarely recognised formally. This is your opportunity to nominate a family carer who makes a world of difference and who is always there through the good and the tougher times.

Helpful Information

Please include the following information for the judges:

  • 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 an impact on the person being cared for
  • Provide examples of when the carer/s has demonstrated positivity in the face of challenges encountered
  • Tell us about a time when the carer/s has supported others in a similar caring role.
