The Wales Care Awards - rewarding excellence in social care for 12 years and counting

First held in 2003, the Wales Care Awards are an annual fixture in the social care calendar. They reward the champions of the sector and raise public awareness of the vital contribution made by the social care workforce to the health and wellbeing of the people of Wales. The Wales Care Awards have helped to raise the status and profile of the work of the social care workforce in Wales.
