Carer-Friendly Business Awards 2017 – nominations now open

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.

Any person providing unpaid care and support to a family member/s or friends can nominate. This is your opportunity to say “thank you” and ensure the business or person who has assisted you is recognised. 

The Carer-Friendly Business Awards terms and conditions provides further details about who can nominate for the awards, the judging process and key dates.

Entries close Wednesday 16 August 2017.
