Carer-Friendly Business Awards

Are you a carer who has experienced amazing customer service this year? Are you working for a business that demonstrates an understanding of your role as a family carer?

Nominate today

This is the 15th year of Carers Queensland’s Carer-Friendly Business Awards – recognising and celebrating Queensland employers, employees and businesses that go the extra mile to make life better for some of the 500,000 carers in Queensland.

We invite you to nominate a Queensland business, employee, service provider or employer, who deserves recognition for exceptional service or carer-friendly employment practices.

This is your opportunity to say ‘’thank you’’ to a business or person for making a positive difference to your life.

Nominations close Thursday 16 August 2018

Regional category winners are announced in early September. State winners and the carers who nominated them are invited to attend the State Awards as part of the Carers Week Launch and Gala Lunch in Brisbane on 12 October 2018.

You might like to view some of last year’s Carer-Friendly Business Awards winners to give you some ideas for your nominations.

Carer-Friendly Business Awards Nomination Form 2018

  • Please be as detailed as possible. For example - 'With my wife's dementia gradually worsening I engaged the services of a house cleaner. Jan not only cleans my house weekly, she also insists on staying with my wife for an extra hour at no charge, so I can have a break from my caring role. Jan's generosity has allowed me to take some time out. I always feel refreshed and look forward to seeing my wife again.'

Carers Queensland gratefully appreciates the funding support from the Queensland Government to assist with regional activities during Carers Week 2018.
