National Stars of Social Care Awards

What are the Social Care Star Awards?

These awards aim to shine a light on the stars of social care, paying tribute to the workforce, who through dedication and commitment to care, go above and beyond to support those who are most vulnerable. The new awards were split into Home and Home Care Home events, and took place across two nights at London Marriott Hotel, Regents Park. The category winners were carefully selected by Professor Martin Green, CEO at Care England, and his team.
