The Carers Trust has launched Pride in Our Carers Awards 2018 and is inviting nominations to honour family carers and carer friendly professionals and organisations .

For the third year the awards celebrate the work of unpaid carers of all ages in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

Miriam Martin, chief executive of Carers Trust Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, Norfolk, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to celebrate family carers of all ages, who have a dedicated caring role without receiving any recognition for what they do.

“This is a chance for the community to show their appreciation for them, as well as acknowledge the carer friendly GP practices, health and social care professionals, teachers, community organisations and businesses that support family carers.

“We want these awards to inspire individuals, organisations and business to understand how they can better support these unsung heroes.”

• Deadline is Monday April 16. Categories include young carer of the year, carer friendly employer, carer friendly school/college and outstanding contribution.
