Forward Carers has been shortlisted in the Third Sector Organisation of the Year Category for the 2021 Birmingham Post Business Awards.
Midlands Air Ambulance Charity and Witton Lodge Community Association are also shortlisted for this award, with the winner being revealed at a virtual awards ceremony on 15 June at 6.30pm.
Forward Carers is a West Midlands based award-winning social enterprise and Community Interest Compnay, committed to creating ‘Carer-friendly Communities’. Unpaid Carers are amazing people who care for a frail or sick loved-one who couldn’t manage without them.
We are the lead partner and founder of Birmingham Carers Hub, and other Carer services, which we deliver in partnership with 20 grassroots organisations based in the communities they serve. Birmingham Carers Hub provides advice, support and wellbeing services that make a real difference, to the lives of over 18,000 family Carers in Birmingham. We are funded by local authorities, NHS partners and charitable grants.
Since we started in 2014, Carers and families have been at the heart of our work, because they are the hearts of our wonderful communities. This past year was tough, but we were inspired by the incredible hard work and dedication of Carers to achieve more than we knew was possible. We feel proud of our partnerships and our region, and we want to thank all Carers for everything they do.
We are thrilled to be shortlisted for this prestigious award.
