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.
