Winners will receive a one thousand word feature in Care Management Matters either online or in a printed edition. Circulation on average is 22,000.

If you are successful

If your entry or nomination is successful and shortlisted to the final three in your chosen category, you and one guest will be invited to attend the Awards ceremony at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square.

You will enjoy a 3-course lunch which will follow the ceremony where the winners of each category will be announced.

Being a finalist will offer an excellent publicity opportunity for you and your organisation.

All finalists will be presented with a certificate and trophy at the Awards ceremony. Finalists will also be provided with a Markel 3rd Sector Care Awards winner or finalist exclusive logo to use on your company promotional material and website.

Following the Award ceremony, all finalists will appear on the website and in Care Management Matters magazine.
