Who is eligible?
The charity sector has been hard-hit by the pandemic, both in demand for support and services that are there to help with healthcare needs beyond emergency care, and the impact of lost revenue due to the cancellation of fundraising events and campaigns. Despite this, hundreds of UK charities, CIC’s, social enterprises and volunteers have stepped up to help those most in need, as a result of Covid-19 and other health and care challenges.
Without the support from a number of charities both locally and nationally, there would have been many individuals with complex needs, with nowhere to turn. Charities have collaborated, partnered, and supported the NHS and Social Care organisations in both small and big ways, each effort making a difference to someone. We want to hear from charities of all shapes and sizes who have made a difference to the health and wellbeing of the public, no matter the field, be that mental health, grief support, learning disability, vaccination roll-out and many, many more. Anyone can make a nomination, including members of the public.
Demonstrable impact on patients, service users, healthcare staff, care staff, organisations, or the public in relation to health, care or wellbeing

Collaboration with NHS or a Social Care organisation a plus, however independent initiatives will still be well regarded for this award
Demonstrating positive support from either volunteers, the public, government or employers for your charities key aims and mission
