Carer Friendly Business Awards Birmingham

 Forward Carers has launched the Carer Friendly Business Awards Birmingham, to encourage more companies to support their staff who have caring responsibilities outside of work. These caring responsibilities would be to someone living with an illness, disability, mental health condition or as they grow older.

If you have received support and understanding from your employer or you know a local business that goes above and beyond to ensure you have a positive experience then help us celebrate them by nominating them for an award.

The Awards has three categories:

 The Working for Carers Award – In order for an organisation to be eligible it must be signed up to the Working for Carers scheme. A panel of independent judges will determine the winner.

All businesses signed up to the Working for Carers scheme are automatically entered and the winner is chosen by the public by voting.

The Carer Friendly Champion Award – Anyone can nominate a manager, team, colleague or individual within their workplace, who have gone above and beyond to support staff or a staff member in a caring role. The business/office must be in Birmingham. A panel of independent judges will determine the winner.
