Nominations are open for the Care & Support West Care Awards, supported by Bristol, South Glos, B&NES and North Somerset Councils. This is your chance to nominate a person, or a team, or an organisation who really make a difference to your life or to the life of someone you know or care for.

Social Care is a beleaguered sector, with cost pressures and a poor media image which is completely at odds with the great work performed day in and day out. Show that their work is valued and help us to celebrate these valuable people.

You can find out more here: You can see a video of the Awards Dinner last year and see all of the winners, plus there are links to the nomination process, with information on the award categories and judging criteria. You can e-mail or call me if you have further questions.
