Support Worker Award

The award

It is hard to underestimate the difference good support can make to a person’s life. This award will recognise a support worker who has gone above and beyond to help a person with learning disabilities to make the best of every day, and to reach their full potential.

Helpful information

For this category, the judges will be looking for nominations which fit the following criteria:

  • Demonstrate and give examples of the support worker’s enthusiasm and passion for their role
  • Include examples of times when the support worker has ‘gone the extra mile’
  • Evidence when the support worker has actively promoted the views and wishes of the person(s) that they support.
