The Bucks Free Press has launched the Buckinghamshire Health and Social Care Awards this year after a tough year for everyone. 

The awards are designed to recognise those who have been on the frontline and in our communities supporting those in need. 

We are shining a spotlight on different categories that you can nominate a team or an individual for. 

For the full list of categories and how to nominate, go to

The Care Hero Award

This award recognises that all our care workers are heroes.

Care workers make a difference to people’s lives every day and this award celebrates just that.

Do you know a care worker who has worked hard to enable someone to live an independent, safe, and fulfilled life?

Have they helped to change someone’s life for the better?

It is these everyday stories about how our care workers make a difference (big or small) that the judges want to hear.

If you think you know someone that fits the bill and deserves an award, go to to nominate.
