How much does it cost to enter?

With the growth of the Home Care Awards and the number of entries received, the processing of entries and the administration of the judging process involve real costs and so modest entry fees have been introduced to cover them.

All entries and their bona fides are checked before they are added to the judging lists. Entries are then collated and bookmarked in portfolios for the ease of the judges. The judging panels are convened, the judging process is supervised and any judging event is hosted. The cost of items associated with the judging are covered; all marks to establish a benchmark for all categories are calculated; and the short lists of finalists are compiled and published.

First entry: £250.00 plus VAT
First entry for a member of Homecare Association: £175.00 plus VAT
Second or subsequent entry made by the same organisation: FREE

Fees should be paid at the time of entry, but if you wish to receive an invoice for payment, this can be arranged. 

By way of advance notice, please note that we will always run an event to celebrate the success of Finalists after judging is complete. For 2025, the plan is for a physical event, where table places will be available at a rate per person. These charges will be additional to any entry fees. Being part of a physical event or online presentation is at the discretion of each Finalist company and the results declared are completely independent of participation.

Entries open: September 1

Entries close: November 30
