About carers Carer engagement Jane Roebuck Carers Awards Northamptonshire Carers Awards 2018 The new year brings the annual Jane Roebuck Carer Awards which recognises those that devote their time to looking after someone in their family without being paid. “The county’s carers are too often the unsung heroes of the wider story of Northamptonshire’s healthcare. These awards give us all the chance to recognise their dedication, compassion and commitment. Carers are all very real people, who do something quite remarkable every day, in situations which last for many years. If you know someone who deserves recognition for the help, support, nurture and compassion that they provide, please nominate them” Mark Major, Chief Executive Officer of Northamptonshire Carers The awards will take place at Barton Hall, Kettering on Wednesday 30th January 2019.
