Welcome to the National Learning Disabilities Awards 14th July 2017, The ICC Birmingham
The National Learning Disabilities Awards celebrate excellence in the support for people with learning disabilities and aim to pay tribute to those individuals or organisation who excel in providing quality care.
Last year was the third year for the National Learning Disabilities & Autism Awards and the enthusiasm from the industry was overwhelming. The quality of the finalists from throughout the sector was extremely high and the judges had the unenviable task of choosing an overall winner for each category – a true national champion.
The National Learning Disabilities & Autism Awards offer a unique opportunity to celebrate the successes of individuals, teams and businesses throughout the UK – people who really do make a positive impact on people’s lives.
Organised by Care Talk the awards have already received support from across the sector and are supported by the Department of Health, Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS), Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) and Voluntary Organisations Disability Group (VODG). The media partner is Care Talk magazine, which has a redership of 24,000 plus and includes all registered care providers in England.
There are a total of 21 award categories available for nomination, which represent all areas of care for people with learning disabilities and autism within the care sector, whether it be young or older people, supporting people in their own homes, the residential care sector or the voluntary sectors. From frontline staff such as care workers and care managers to people who have made an impact in other ways such as training and innovation.
