Welcome to the Markel 3rd Sector Care Awards.
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.

You’ll learn and see more in two days at The Care Show than you would in months from your office. It can often feel like you’re too busy to take time out, but spending even one day at the event dedicated to helping you find the best solutions will help you to save time through efficiencies in the future.
