The NI Health & Social Care Awards is an event that is not for profit with the aim to celebrate the hard work, dedication, and commitment of all involved within the health and social care sector in Northern Ireland.
This event is privately organised and we are just looking to cover costs, we wouldn’t have been able to facilitate and run this event without our own personal investment and not to forget the very generous contributions from our sponsors. However, it is important to note, that the financial support received from the co-founders and our sponsors does not cover all expenses incurred and we, unfortunately, haven’t had any public funding.
We have priced tickets at the absolute lowest we could and in alignment with other awards events, these tickets are usually charged in the region of £120 per person.
The evening is set to be extremely high-end and will be a great night to celebrate the hard work of all within health and social care. We hope this helps give some perspective from our end as we are doing this to recognise the sector and most definitely not to generate profit.
An amazing opportunity to thank and celebrate our frontline Health and Social Care workers for their unwavering dedication and commitment to the people of Northern Ireland.
An event of this nature is all about people! No better occasion for you to meet and interact with likeminded folks, whilst celebrating and acknowledging all the achievements of our frontline Health and Social Care workers.
Take the opportunity now to platform and shout about the achievements of you or your team! Proudly show off the best of the Northern Ireland Health and Social Care sector! Be proud of what you do each and everyday,
