My Forever Family NSW are excited to announce we’re celebrating the Carer Recognition Awards this June!
My Forever Family NSW facilitates the annual Carer Recognition Awards as part of our mission to provide support to carers and recognise the valuable role they play in the lives of children and young people. These awards are open to all authorised carers in NSW and nominations are submitted by carer’s peers, agencies, families, and young people in care.
Our 2021 Carer Recognition Awards were postponed due to COVID restrictions in place at the time, so we are excited to be recognising the nominated carers this year. Nominations have closed and nineteen award winners across several categories have been selected. These categories include:
- Caring for sibling groups
- Providing long-term care
- Carers who provide short-term, part-time, or emergency care
- Caring for teenagers
Recipients will receive a certificate of acknowledgment, along with prizes.
