Sponsorship

Sponsoring the Markel 3rd Sector Care Awards is an excellent way to prove your commitment to this dedicated sector.

Now established in its sixth consecutive year, the Markel 3rd Sector Care Awards is a sophisticated daytime event celebrating the hard work and innovation in the not-for-profit care and support sector.

Limited sponsorship opportunities allow you to showcase your organisation amongst some of the sector’s leading associations, alliances and thinkers.

'I am proud to have been involved in helping to establish the 3rd Sector Care Awards with Care Management Matters in 2014 when I was at the National Care Forum…Over the last five years, the Awards event has quietly become a social occasion in the care sector calendar. The way the awards are organised has helped to create a special atmosphere of celebration – using the arts as part of the event and drawing on the talent within the care sector has been inspired! Attending is without doubt an emotional experience and the pride in personal and team contributions is tangible. Not everyone can win…but all the finalists bring to life the amazing work that the best social care can represent.’ – Des Kelly, Formerly Executive Director of the National Care Forum

‘It’s a small touch, but to give nominees certificates is something that really makes them feel valued – we rarely see that at other events. To see people who access support provide the entertainment at a social care awards is so right too…That’s exactly what we’re looking for in awards events – people who care about the sector and give our guests a good experience.’ – John Hughes, former Senior Marketing and Communications Officer, Community Integrated Care.
