Carer Friendly Business Awards

Carers Queensland’s Carer Friendly Business Awards (CFBA) recognise and celebrate employers, employees, and businesses that go the extra mile to make life better for carers.

For 18 years, Carers Queensland’s Carer Friendly Business Awards have been recognising and celebrating employers, employees, and businesses that go the extra mile to make life better for carers.

Each year, in the lead up to National Carers Week, we invite carers to nominate individuals or businesses who deserve recognition for exceptional service or carer friendly employment practices.

Award categories

Nominations are for Queensland only, and made under the following three categories:

  • GREAT Employer – this category acknowledges an employer who demonstrates an understanding of a carer’s situation and supports their caring commitments outside of work with alternative work arrangements and established policies or practices in place.
  • GREAT Employee – this category recognises employees of a company or service provider that goes the extra mile in helping carers.
  • GREAT Business – this category acknowledges businesses that go ‘above and beyond’ in their services for carers.

This is the opportunity to say “thank you” for making a positive difference in a carer’s life.

When are winners announced?

State winners and the carers who nominated them will be announced at our awards event on Tuesday 12 October.

Carer Friendly Business Awards Nominations are now CLOSED for 2021.
