The Greater Manchester Health and Care Champion Awards are the only Greater Manchester-wide awards to recognise those people who regularly go above and beyond to improve the health and wellbeing of the people of Greater Manchester.
The awards are organised by Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, with support from the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham. They were established in 2018, and the 2020 awards event was put on hold due to COVID-19. Previous winners include care home managers, GPs, social workers, disability advocate groups, fundraisers and social enterprises.
Nominations for the awards are now closed, the short list will be announced by the end of September.
This year’s award categories include recognising our key worker and community champions, innovators, volunteers, leaders at any level and those who have helped improve the wellbeing of those around them during such a challenging year.
The awards are open to all individuals or teams, paid or unpaid, who work in the health or care sector in Greater Manchester or through broader work help improve the health and wellbeing of others. Nominations can be completed by colleagues or members of the public who wish to see an individual or team’s hard work recognised.
The winners will be announced at a sponsored virtual event in the autumn.
We are delighted to be working with our media sponsors Hits Radio and the Manchester Evening News to deliver these awards.
