The Great British Care Awards are renowned as a series of regional events held throughout the UK, dedicated to celebrating excellence across the care sector. These awards aim to pay tribute to individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their respective fields of work.

With twenty-one distinct award categories, these accolades encompass all areas of the social care sector, spanning older people, specialist services, residential care, and home care.
