To honour all the hardworking people who provide social care.
Bespoke Consultancy & Education Ltd is proud to organise the 2nd Carers Celebration Award. This event is to honour all the hardworking people who provide social care and if you work in social care or you are a provider, we wish to welcome you to be part of it.
How it all started.
In 2019, our Operations director Alison Webber noticed the amount of stress and pressure from those working around the clock to keep adults in the community and residential homes, who require care and support in their daily lives as safe as possible during the pandemic.
In addition to negative press involving the care sector, it was a tough and challenging year for all. But instead of focusing on the negative, Alison is determined to put the spotlight on the good and positive things about being in the care sector.
In 2020, together with her team at Bespoke Consultancy and Education, they launched the inaugural Carers Celebration to celebrate carers from all walks of life and to honour all the hardworking people who provide social care. Upon launching, the event received over 150 nominations within 3 months. Nearly 100 people attended the virtual event to celebrate this memorable day.
Celebrities showed their support for this event such as Andy Day from Andy and The Odd Socks, Gary Davies from BBC Radio 2, Luke Spiller from The Struts, and Barry Farrimond from BBC Radio 4. Generous sponsors from Ravensburger, University Games, Bear Grylls Adventure, Merlin Entertainment, Ty Beanie, Half Moon Bay, The Promotional People, ACF Team Building & Events, Beautiful You UK, Product Zone, MUSICA, Badgemaster and Scruffy Dog Creative Group supported the event with amazing prizes for all the winners.
What to expect this year.
