If you know a Herefordshire carer who has helped to change someone’s life - nominate them for a David Price Award

Herefordshire’s Making it Real Board is inviting people to nominate carers from their local community for a 2020 David Price Award.

The annual David Price Award recognises an individual of any age who has, in an unpaid capacity, helped change the life of an adult or adults in the county. 

Candidates may be a friend, a neighbour, support worker, member of a group or organisation, family member, colleague or volunteer.

The award is in memory of Herefordshire resident, David Price, who sadly passed away in May 2016.  The award celebrates David’s work as a pioneer of disability involvement across the local community.
