Awards 2020!

As the charity for everyone involved in Shared Lives and Homeshare, we know it’s the extra plus that makes the difference – and that’s what our members do every day.

We love celebrating your incredible work around the UK and we’re excited to announce the opening of our awards this year for Shared Lives carers and schemes!

There are four categories you can enter, by nominating yourself or someone who’s been the plus – and made a difference – for you.

– Outstanding Shared Lives carer of the year: sponsored by Design Integrity
– The human rights award for free expression
– Shared Lives champion of the year
– The award for scheme innovation

Your nomination must be supported by all three:

  • another Shared Lives carer
  • your scheme manager
  • someone who lives with or visits a Shared Lives carer.

If you can’t ask someone from each category, ask another person – we hope that nominations will involve a range of people, but if that’s tricky, don’t let it hold you back!

Be inspired by the Award winners of 2019!

How to nominate

Use the links below to enter your nominations here by 10am, Friday 25 September 2020 on the forms provided. We’d also love you to send us a 2-minute video – just from a cameraphone, no special effects needed – of you describing the person you’re nominating.
