Sunderland Caring for Carers Awards 2016

Sponsored by


Do you live in the City of Sunderland and look after a family member or friend with a long-term illness or disability?

Has a worker or team from health, social services, a home care agency, a voluntary or community project or another organisation been of particular support to you in your caring role?

For example, a nurse, doctor, dentist, optician, pharmacist, consultant, social worker, care worker, or a voluntary or community worker.

If so, this is your chance to say thank you by nominating them for the Caring for Carers Awards 2016.

The awards aim to recognise workers and teams who have made a real difference to the lives of carers.

All workers and teams who have been nominated will receive a certificate and the winners will be presented with their awards during Carers Week (6 - 12 June).


How to nominate someone

To nominate someone simply complete a nomination form and return it to:

Caring for Carers Awards

Sunderland Carers' Centre

or email it to

Click here for a nomination form

The closing date for nominations is

Friday 15th 2016.


Please note:

The award winners are not chosen by the Carers' Centre but by an independent panel of judges.

It would be helpful to the judges if you could give as much information as possible about how the worker or team has helped you in your caring role and why you think they deserve an award.

Nominations must be from carers only and the person you nominate must be a worker or team (not a young carer or other family member / friend).

We are also unable to accept nominations for workers or teams from Sunderland Carers' Centre.
