The Markel 3rd Sector Care Awards are returning for the fifth year, organised by Care Management Matters (CMM).
Nominations are now open for you to nominate yourself, a colleague, team or organisation in any of the 12 categories. Employees of all levels are encouraged to enter, as long as they are working in a not-for-profit organisation.
It’s easy to nominate – just click on your chosen category and answer a few questions about what you do. It only takes around 30 minutes.
- The Leading Change Adding Value Award for Compassion – is compassion inherent in all aspects of what you do? Are you demonstrating relationship-centred support? Nominate yourself or a colleague now.
- Technology Award – if you are using technology in an innovative and person-centred way to enhance people’s lives, this could be the category for you.
- Making a Difference Award – this award is perfect for an outstanding individual who has sole responsibility for their organisation and is having a significant impact on outcomes. Does this sound like you, a colleague or contact? Nominate today.
- Leadership Award – we’re looking for leaders at any level of the organisation in this category. Who has lead the way to make an outstanding contribution in a person-centred, quality service?
- Collaboration (Integration) Award – are you finding new ways to work collaboratively with other organisations, achieving outcomes that otherwise would not have been seen? Nominate now and tell us all about your project.
All 12 categories and entry criteria are available on the Markel 3rd Sector Care Awards website. Nominations will close on Friday 7th September 2018.
Previous winners include Anchor, Alzheimer’s Support, Autism Together, Choice Support, Dimensions and Methodist Homes.
John Hughes, who has won with both Community Integrated Care and Widnes Vikings said, ‘Being recognised at the 3rd Sector Care Awards in recent years has been a genuine career highlight. This event is everything that a care sector awards event should be – robust judges, wonderfully inclusive and a genuine celebration of best practice.
‘Participating in these Awards has created real opportunities, both for myself professionally and also for the organisations that I represent, enabling us to grow our networks and learn from others. If you have something special to share with your peers in the care sector or an achievement that deserves celebrating publicly, I would encourage you to enter the 3rd Sector Care Awards.’
Once again, Dame Esther Rantzen will be hosting the ceremony, this time alongside her daughter, Rebecca Wilcox. The ceremony will take place at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square in London on Friday 7th December.
