Daily Echo Editor Andy Martin said: “We are delighted to be hosting these very special awards for the second year.

“The dedication of all those involved in caring for others, whether they be professionally trained or informal or family carers is amazing and these awards are a tribute to them and all they do. Where on earth would we be without them? We heard some wonderful and inspiring stories in last year’s awards. I know it will be the same this year.”
