With the closing date for nominations on April 20, The Carers Association is sending a final call to people across Kilkenny to nominate family carers for the Carers of the Year Awards 2012.

The Carers Association’s Carer of the Year and Young Carer of the Year (under-18) Awards are based on a national nomination process in which members of the public, including health care professionals, nominate their chosen family carers from across Ireland.

All family carers nominated will receive a commemorative certificate and four regional winners are chosen, from which one will be announced as the overall Carer of the Year 2012.

The award recipients, including the Young Carer of the Year 2012, will be recognised at a national presentation ceremony in Dublin in May.

To nominate a family carer, see www.carersireland.com or call Pat Grogan, The Carers Association, Kilkenny on 056 7721424.
