Hospice UK Awards are kindly supported by the National Gardens Scheme.
The National Gardens Scheme (NGS) opens around 3,700 gardens of quality, character and interest to the public each year, to raise money for nominated care charities. Since 1996 the NGS has donated £5 million to hospice care and are the largest funder of our work.
We are delighted to open the 2018 Hospice UK Awards, celebrating the innovative work and people in hospices and palliative care organisations across the UK.
The Innovation Awards are made in a number of key areas. We look for stand out projects that will inspire other hospices and palliative care organisations, and show the world why they are such innovative organisations.
There are also an additional two categories to recognise the special contribution to hospice care made by individuals.
Members and Subscribers of Hospice UK are eligible to enter, with the exception of the Towergate Hospice Team of the Year Award, which is only open to member hospices.
The Dying Matters Award is open to those who registered an event in England, Wales (via Byw Nawr) and Northern Ireland.
The deadline for all entries and nomination was Friday, 14 September 2018, which has now passed.
All winners will receive glassware and a one-day free conference place. In addition we offer accommodation for winners of the Volunteer of the Year and Volunteer Gardener of the Year.
Winning also gives you an opportunity to instil pride and morale in staff, volunteers, supporters and your wider community. There will also be public relations (PR) opportunities for winning hospice to publicise their success.
Awards will be presented on Tuesday 27 November, at our National Conference dinner at the Telford International Centre.
