Sponsor the 2024 Accolades

Information about ways to sponsor the 2024 Accolades.

The Accolades is an opportunity for your organisation to show your support for workers who do so much to support others in our communities.

By sponsoring the Accolades, you can:

  • directly help raise standards of social care and childcare, play and early years in Wales
  • align yourselves with excellence and achievement.

We’ll also publicise your organisation’s support of the Accolades to more than 100,000 workers and decision-makers in social care and childcare, play and early years in Wales. And all this for a relatively small investment.

Why sponsor the 2024 Accolades?

Sponsoring the 2024 Accolades is cost-effective, with tangible benefits. There are several reasons why sponsoring the awards makes good business sense:

  • they’re high-profile

    The sector recognises the awards as the pinnacle of achievement for those who provide services for adults and children in Wales.

    This means the 100,000-strong workforce has a high awareness of the Accolades.

    The awards ceremony is usually attended by decision-makers, such as:
    • the Deputy Minister for Social Services
    • senior Welsh Government officials, including the Chief Social Care Officer
    • local authority directors of social services
    • local councillors with responsibility for social services
    • heads of national social care and childcare, play and early years organisations
    • managers of social care and childcare, play and early years providers.
  • they stand for excellence and achievement

The Accolades are designed to recognise the very best of social care and childcare, play and early years teams and workers.

The standard is very high, which makes the Accolades a great option for organisations that want to be aligned with excellence and achievement.

  • they’re a direct link to achieving high standards of care and support in Wales

Your sponsorship will help motivate those who take part to keep standards high and share notable practice with their colleagues.

  • they’re a cost-effective investment

More than ever, sponsorship packages need to be reasonably priced to make business sense for any organisation. That’s why the cost of becoming involved in the Accolades starts at just £2,500.
