The Wales Care Awards are an annual event run by Care Forum Wales to showcase best practice across the care sector. The 2017 Wales Care Awards, the 15th annual awards, take place on Friday November 17 in Cardiff’s City Hall.

Anyone involved in the care industry can nominate an individual or a team for an award. So, whether you’d like to nominate an outstanding nurse, think your catering team are unsung heroes or you have a hard-working manager whose efforts deserve recognition, this is a chance to have your say.

The awards ceremony is open to all who wish to attend.

The Awards will be presented in three categories – gold, silver and bronze – and are an important part of raising the profile of care workers and educating the public about the vital work we do.

Attending the ceremony is also an occasion to mingle with fellow care sector staff, compare best practice and, of course, to have some well-deserved fun. So, come along and enjoy the evening – this is your time to shine.
