Every year the Irish Red Cross recognises the work of voluntary carers across Ireland through our Carer of the Year award.
Nominations for this year’s award are now open to anyone who wants the chance to have a voluntary carer celebrated for their work looking after loved ones.
If you know a carer who deserves recognition, or if you are a carer yourself, please complete the nomination form and tell us about them/you.
The Irish Red Cross Carer of the Year 2016 award is open to all unpaid carers supporting the needs of people in any circumstance and of any age. Nominees do not need to be Irish Red Cross members.
Who is a Carer?
A carer is someone that provides physical or emotional support to a person who is ill, lonely, elderly, and vulnerable or has a disability. They can be any age, including children, and do not have to be a relative.
