Awards Description

The scope of the Awards is summed up in the heading: People. Provision. Performance.

The Awards will look at the expertise of companies providing home care in the UK, praise the teams that are making a difference by looking to raise standards, and look at both the products and services that the supplier side of the sector offers and at the organisations providing advice and consultancy in the sector. In addition, the Awards will find two outstanding winners of the Overall Achievement categories.

Why sponsor?

Sponsoring the Home Care Awards provides a host of branding, marketing, networking and data opportunities in print, online and face-to-face at the event. We are keen to enlist the participation and support of commercial organisations that serve the whole home care sector.

Sponsorship Types

All categories are available to sponsors. In addition there are other opportunities for sponsorship, from the Reception, to the After Glow Tea Party.

Each sponsorship can be customised for an individual sponsor. Sponsors will receive branding and recognition in all promotional activity related to the awards.

Raising your brand profile

Associating your brand with the Home Care Awards will generate strong brand recognition within the sector. Your presence at the awards event, where you will present an award in person and host a table will show the sector how important you are within it. 

PR and marketing opportunities

Branding does not begin and end at the event itself. Sponsors enjoy a whole 9 months of marketing opportunities to both the consumer market and the trade sector ensuring that your brand profile is at the forefront of your customers minds throughout the year. 

Industry leadership

You may already consider yourself as one of the industry’s leaders, or perhaps you are looking to establish yourself as one. Awards sponsorship puts you at the very heart of the sector enabling you to stand out from competitors. 

Business development

We expect some 300 leading home care sector executives in the room on the day of the awards, so this event is a unique opportunity for a Sponsor and their team to network amongst the industry’s key decision-makers. They will use sponsorship and the event to host and thank key customers, initiate new business and generate new business relationships and opportunities.

To discuss building a bespoke sponsorship package for your company please contact Helen Burgin in the first instance.
