The day was an incredible success. Not only did attendees get to hear about the amazing best practice being carried out by third sector providers, they were also entertained by fantastic performances from Dance Unity and Halas Homes. The moving dance routines brought many audience members to tears.
Dame Esther Rantzen once again kept the day running smoothly. Putting her interviewing techniques to good use, drawing out why the winners were truly deserving and making the day very special for everyone in attendance.
The Awards were so well-received, #3rdSectorCareAwards trended on Twitter for the second year running. Sitting at number 2 – just below Prime Minister’s Questions, the exposure helped to raise the profile of the winners and finalists.
The event was made possible thanks to the supporters and sponsors, whose generosity helped the Awards recognise the innovation and excellence of the finalists.
