Uncovering excellence, innovation and creativity in the voluntary care and support sector.
The Awards are designed to reward the hard work, dedication, innovation and excellence of everyone working in the not-for-profit sector who is making a positive difference to people’s lives, whether they are supporting children or adults.
Organised by CMM, and developed in conjunction with the National Care Forum, the Markel 3rd Sector Care Awards are the perfect way to share the work you’ve been doing to support those who need it most.
