Macmillan Professionals Excellence Awards

Find out how Macmillan acknowledge the hard work our professionals do each year through the Macmillan Professionals Excellence Awards.

Macmillan Professionals Excellence Awards

These awards recognise and celebrate the outstanding contribution Macmillan professionals make to cancer services. The work of Macmillan professionals is vital in improving the lives of people affected by cancer, and we want them to know just how much they're valued.

Our awards are presented in three categories:

Up to four awards will be given in each category. We’ll also interview eligible individual finalists for a Macmillan fellowship.

We’ve produced a Top Tips document [PDF] on things to bear in mind when writing your nomination.

The prizes are £150 plus an award for each individual winner, and £500 and a plaque for a winning team. Macmillan fellows will be able to access a £10,000 grant. Additionally, the awards will enable the winners to raise the profile of their work and celebrate it on a nationwide scale.

We’ll invite all the award finalists, along with their guests and representatives from their organisations, to a high-profile awards ceremony on Thursday 16 November 2017.

Nominations open on 2 February and close at midnight on 31 March.
