Northamptonshire Carers Awards 2023

Our annual Carers Awards took place on Thursday 28th September 2023 at Moulton Community Centre, jointly compared with Martin Heath of BBC Radio Northampton. 

Mark Major CEO of Northamptonshire Carers:

“I’d like to tell you how very humbling it was for us, looking through this year’s nominations.  I am very lucky to have a job that’s about supporting Carers because it means I see on a daily basis that most astonishing thing, the uniqueness and strength of the human spirit, and how sometimes the very worst of situations can bring out the very best in people. Without the support they give today, tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, services would collapse under the strain.”

Jemma Cafe Assistant Director : Adult & Young Carers

 “With special thanks to our sponsors, guests and Carers we had a heartwarming day to say thanks to not only our winners of this year’s awards but also to recognise and celebrate every Carer in Northamptonshire. This event is all about Carers, recognising and championing all that they do”
