Meet our sponsors

Get to know the people who make the Markel 3rd Sector Care Awards possible.

The support of our sponsors is integral to putting on the Markel 3rd Sector Care Awards. Without them, the event simply would not be possible.

But their support goes further than that. It enables us to offer free tickets to our finalists, to host the judging day and ceremony in Central London, and to offer certificates to everyone who makes it to the final round (not to mention helping us put wine on the tables).

Find out about our supporters and their passion and ambitions in the voluntary social care sector here.
