Care and Support Awards 2022


On Friday 8th April we came together to recognise and celebrate the incredible work of our care and support sector.

Over 200 of you joined us in person for the evening, and even more of you tuned in at home to watch our first ever Livestream of the Awards with CHAOS TV.

It was a fabulous evening, held with our Key Supporter the CHAOS Group, and hosted by our friend Big Ian Donaghy. The ceremony was opened by Babs Rounsevell (MBE), a champion of the sector, who knows all about the hard work that has been put in over the last two years.

Congratulations to all our nominees, finalists, and winners!

You can watch the Livestream of the Awards, with presenters Henry and Ross, below.
