Application process

If you wish to be considered for an award please compete an application form attached to this pack. The form is very simple but we do ask that you tell us in detail why you feel you or your organisation should be chosen to receive an award and give real examples of how the way you work has had positive results.
If your application is shortlisted you will be notified and a date will be organised for a Suffolk Care Awards verifier to visit your workplace, talk to staff and service users, and see your good practice in action.

You will be notified if you have been judged to be in the top three services for the category and if so will receive a formal invitation to the Suffolk Care Awards Ceremony.

The winners of each category will be announced on the night.
