The Who Will Care? Awards 2020 are an opportunity to pay tribute to those who have made an outstanding impact on their community and improved the lives of others.

This year’s award ceremony will be held on the evening of Wednesday 13th May 2020 at Anglia Ruskin University in Chelmsford.

Who Will Care? began in 2013 when five independent commissioners were tasked with tackling the single largest challenge since the 1960’s – how will we care for ourselves and our communities right now and in the future? – and volunteering was acknowledged as one of the five high-impact solutions to address this very difficult question.

Nominations are now open until Sunday 15 March 2020.

Tell us about volunteers, groups, a business or charity that has made an impact on your community and improved the lives of others. This is your opportunity to show just how much you appreciate them. To make a nomination please visit: www.essex.gov.uk/whowillcare
