The mirus stars awards are held to celebrate the achievements and participation of people we support, mirus staff, volunteers and carers. 

Everyone makes such a massive difference to people’s lives and often a massive contribution to their local community. They live our vision and values, - and turn possibilities into realities, which is exactly what mirus is all about. 

Changes to the mirus stars awards for 2020

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

Nominations have now closed, and we received a staggering 529 overall - that's over 200 more than last year!

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.
