Carer Tips Competition
All carers learn a great deal during their caring career. From our support work, we know carers are keen to help each other; Omega wants to encourage care-givers to share information. Tell us your top tips, and you could help other carers and have the chance to win a cash prize of £100.
How to Enter
Ask yourself: what do you know now that you wish you had known when you first became a carer? What is the most useful thing you’ve learnt since you’ve been caring. For example, it could be a service or an organisation you’ve discovered, a helpful individual who has made a real difference, a website or book, a way of managing your time or a relaxation technique – choose something you think other carers should know about.
Download a competition form, complete it in full, and send it to our freepost address- or simply hand it to an Omega Support Group Coordinator or Facilitator. Alternatively, email your Top Tip to firstname.lastname@example.org; if you don’t use the entry form remember to include your name, address and telephone number, and tell us how many years you have been a carer.
Entry is open to all unpaid care-givers aged 18 and over. If your Top Tip is judged best in the your area you will win £100 cash, and go forward to the National Final. Good ideas are for sharing. Even if your idea doesn’t win a prize every good idea we receive will be shared with other carers.
The winning Top Tip will be selected by a panel of experts chaired by Dr Teresa Griffin, who will consider:
- How useful your Top Tip will be to other carers
- How easy it will be for other carers to implement your Top Tip
- Whether your Top Tip is innovative or groundbreaking
