Nominations for the Accolades awards now open

Accolades logo 2020

Are you an individual employer committed to developing your own and your personal assistant’s (PAs) skills? Enter the Accolades and get recognised for the great work you do.

If you’re supported by great PAs, who enable you to live the life you choose, then chances are you’re doing a brilliant job as an employer. Sometimes it’s easy to forget this.

Entering the Accolades awards is a good way to recognise and celebrate the hard work that you and your team do, every day.

If you’re a finalist, you’ll be invited to the celebration event and awards ceremony where the winners will be announced.

The brother of last year’s winner, Claire Steeples, shared what winning meant to them. He said:

“This is so exciting, and we can’t wait to go back to the Hampshire and share this with all our friends and everyone who helped us to get to where we are today.”

Who can enter the Accolades?

Individual employers can enter themselves or can be nominated by a personal assistant or others.

If you work with individual employers, you can nominate them for an award.

How to enter?

Visit the website and fill in the application form for the ‘Best individual who employs their own care and support staff’ category.

You just need to tell us about:

  • the things that you do to recruit the right people to be your PAs
  • how you manage them
  • what you do to develop their skills
  • how you widen your skills as an employer.

Help us spread the word

Please share this leaflet with individual employers and colleagues who work with individual employers, and encourage them to enter or nominate. You can email us, with your address, to request printed copies.
