Nominations for the Norfolk Care Awards 2018 close on November 17 – everyone's last chance to celebrate the great care we receive, or the great care a team or service has provided.
Award organisers Tracy Wharvell and Claire Gilbert, from the Norfolk Care Awards team, say: 'We continue to be uplifted and proud of the social care workforce in Norfolk.
'The Norfolk Care Awards are about showcasing the excellent care and great practice across Norfolk.
'Not everyone is cut out to be a care worker; a high calibre, dedicated compassionate person is needed to take on this responsible role. We really do see the best in Norfolk.
'So nominate your best and be proud to be part of Norfolk's amazing social care community.'
James Bullion, executive director of Adult Social Services at Norfolk County Council, adds: 'It is important to celebrate and share good practice, while recognising the passion and commitment of our care professionals in Norfolk.

We can all look forward again to a great evening.'
