Nominate an
unsung hero


Let’s give those unpaid
carers the recognition
they deserve!

Many people living with dementia rely on the love, support and care of family members, friends and unpaid carers. National Dementia Carers’ Day, founded by SweetTree Home Care Services and the Alzheimer’s Society was established to share, recognise, and support this crucial role.


Enter an unsung hero for our National Dementia Carers’ Day award

Sunday (13 September) is the sixth National Dementia Carers Day and to recognise the unprecedented challenges faced this year by family carers and friends who support individuals living at home with dementia, we have launched a special award.

We know there are thousands of remarkable family carers, neighbours and friends who selflessly bring a smile to the face of individuals living with dementia, demonstrating incredible care, patience and intuition to connect with them.

Our new Informal Carer of the Year award, sponsored by SweetTree Home Care Services, will help to shine a spotlight on these unsung heroes, so please submit your nomination via our website or online using the hashtag #NDCDHeroes.

Nominations close on 1 November and – if Covid-19 restrictions allow – we hope to arrange a special presentation of the £150 meal voucher prize. The voucher will cover a meal at a restaurant – or takeaway if times dictate – of the winner’s choice.

We can’t wait to hear your stories! Please register as a NDCD supporter to receive regular updates.
