2019 Winners

6th December 2019, London

The Markel 3rd Sector Care Awards 2019 ceremony took place on Friday 6th December. The day brought together 250 people across the care and support sector to celebrate the fantastic work happening each day in services throughout the country.

The lunchtime ceremony saw Dame Esther and her daughter present awards to the worthy winners, interviewing each person to find out about the sort of work they were doing and uncovering the passion that had won them the award.

The judges were once again taken aback by the calibre of the finalists this year, and, for the first time, the 12 Markel 3rd Sector Care Awards winners were joined in their celebrations by winners of five Judges' Special Recognition Awards.

Congratulations to both finalists and winners.
