Changes to the mirus stars awards for 2020

Here at mirus we want to celebrate everyone’s successes and achievements over the past year.

nominate now - social tile

From now until Friday 14th February 2020 you can nominate a person we support, a volunteer, or a colleague for both a local and national mirus award!

This year we’re having local and national mirus awards.  Each area will have a local awards event as part of ‘Better Together’ in late February to early March 2020 – this means we will be able to celebrate the achievements of even more people! 

The best nominations will then be taken forward to the national mirus awards which will take place on Friday 15th May at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.

What are the awards?

There are 8 award categories outlined below - they help us celebrate the successes and achievements of staff and people we support over the past year.

Local mirus award winners will be announced at ‘Better Together’ events in late February to early March - people nominated for the local awards will automatically be entered into the National mirus awards for celebration in May.

National mirus award winners will be announced at our ceremony in May.


Staff, volunteers, and people we support can nominate others and be nominated.
