Nominations are now open for the fourth annual Towergate Care Awards, which celebrate the best of care in local communities.
The awards, run by Towergate Caring Professions, features five categories – Outstanding Contribution to Home Care, Care Home Worker of the Year, Nursery Worker of the Year, School Worker of the Year and the Towergate Care Award, which recognises an individual who has made a difference to the lives of others through their work, passion and determination.
Winners will receive £500 in Virgin Holidays vouchers, plus a £500 donation to a charity of their choice, a trophy and certificate.
In addition, the Towergate Care Awards runners up will also receive prizes in the form of a £100 Love2Shop voucher and certificate.
Nominations for the Towergate Care Awards are open until Friday, June 7 and following this, a shortlist will be announced at the end of June.
Towergate Caring Professions managing director Richard Webb said: “I’m delighted we’ve brought back the Towergate Care Awards in 2019, this is an important opportunity for us to shine a light on the people within the care industry who are truly making a difference to the lives of others across the UK.
“It’s also a fantastic opportunity to embed ourselves in these communities and gain valuable insight into the caring sectors so we can use this new-founded knowledge to better understand our client’s needs.
“If you have a relative, friend or colleague who is an unsung hero and deserves to be recognised for the work they’re doing across the care, education, medical, charity or other not-for-profit sectors, please make sure you nominate them to show them their efforts make all the difference.”
