The 2017 Carer-Friendly Business Awards
- Thu 6 Jul 2017
Are you a carer who has experienced amazing customer service this year? Or are you working for a business that demonstrates an understanding of your role as a family carer? This is the 14th year of the Carer-Friendly Business Awards – recognising and celebrating Queensland employers, employees and businesses that go the extra mile to make a positive difference to the lives of some of the 500,000 carers in Queensland. The Carer-Friendly Business Awards recognise local businesses, employees and employers who truly support Queensland carers. Every year, we ask carers across Queensland to nominate a business, employee, service provider or employer who is deserving of recognition for exceptional service or carer-friendly employment practices. This is your opportunity to say “thank you” and ensure the business or person who has assisted you is recognised. Who can nominate? Any person providing unpaid care and support to a family member/s or friend/s. How do I nominate? 1. Complete the nomination form with as much supporting information as possible 2. Return the nomination form by Wednesday 16 August 2017 (see over for more details) When are winners announced? Regional category winners are announced in early September and recognised at regional events as part of Carers Week celebrations in October. State winners and the carer who nominated them are invited to attend the State Awards as part of the Carers Week Launch and Gala Lunch in Brisbane. Need more information or help? If you have any further questions or require help with your nomination, please contact your local Carers Queensland office or the Carer Advisory Service on 1800 242 636.
