How much does it cost to enter? Absolutely nothing!
Following initial reactions to our first steps with the Home Care Awards we discovered that an entry fee posed a barrier to companies whose spare cash resources might already be stretched. As a result, we are going to refund the original entry fees paid by the brave organisations that have already entered and promote future entries as FREE OF CHARGE.
This decision will also be reassuring to Charities and not-for-profit organisations that wish to enter. All we ask is that you make sure you tick the “Charity/Not-for-Profit” box at the top of the entry form and provide the Charity number, or Limited by Guarantee registration number in the space provided.
We check all entries and their bona fides, collate all entries and bookmark them in portfolios for the ease of the judges, convene the judging panels, supervise the judging process and events, cover any expense items associated with the judging, calculate all marks to establish a benchmark for all categories, compile and publicise the short lists of finalists.
