The Pride of Gwent Awards are an opportunity to showcase the incredible people, groups and communities. These are our unsung heroes, who should be recognised for the amazing work that they do.
The awards allow the South Wales Argus along with their partners to showcase Gwent and the people that make the difference. Some have saved lives, some have cared for others and some have raised huge sums for charity or have made a real difference to their communities.
We are committed to creating thriving communities, a great working culture, services and support focused on residents, and a programme of new developments. We remain dedicated to listening to and engaging with residents and the communities within which they live.
We understand the value our unsung heroes add to society, so jumped at the chance to see them rewarded by sponsoring the South Wales Argus Pride of Gwent Awards.
The Carer Award category is close to our and our Disability Group hearts, now more than ever recognising the unsung work of carers is so important and they should be recognised for the amazing work they do.
Our Disability Group had the tough decision to take part in the judging of all the categories. Chair of our resident group 100Voices Natalie Gardner will be announcing the winner of the Carer Award at the virtual awards on 11 March. She told us:
“Recognising the work of carers in our communities is something that is very close to my heart. During these difficult times many carers have seen an increase in their responsibilities, whilst still trying to work and deal with the restrictions we have all faced. It has not been easy for many of us, but carers can face increased pressures and isolation so recognising their work in society is something we should all be behind.”
