We are very excited to announce that entries for Bolton Cares Awards 2018 are now open.

Last year’s awards were a huge success with over 100 entries from across our services. The event at the Last Drop Village Hotel was a brilliant opportunity to reward team members across eight categories. With new categories now added, the 2018 awards will take place on Friday 5 October.

This year we are looking to honour more dedicated individuals who uphold the values of our company when caring for the people of Bolton and strive to make a real difference to the people they support and their colleagues around them every day.

Individuals or teams can be nominated for most of the categories and we welcome entry forms from anyone who is involved with our services in some way: families, carers and friends of the people we support, other health professionals or organisations, colleagues within the company and of course we’d love to hear from the people we support.
