Over the last 2 years we have shone a light on individual excellence as a way of saying thank you for delivering the highest standards of care and inspiring others to do the same.

Our profession thrives on collaboration too. As these awards enter their third year, we have added a new ‘team’ category to celebrate group achievements up and down the country. This will recognise the enormous range of skills, expertise and compassion modern adult social care delivers every day of the year.

We want to keep the momentum going, so we would like every award winner to nominate 2 other exceptional people or teams within 12 months of receiving their award. If you are a recipient of an award, we highly encourage you to support us by nominating another colleague.

To nominate a colleague or a team, read the nomination criteria and complete the application form.
