Nominate your Family Stars

Do you know someone who would be over the moon to receive an Ni4kids Family Award?

Nominations are now open and once again we are giving you, our readers, the opportunity to join forces with us to recognise and reward family-friendly people,organisations and businesses across Northern Ireland. Together with our awards sponsors, we believe that the individuals and companies who constantly strive to improve the lives of families with young children – by giving them the best quality service, value for money, entertainment, advice and assistance – should receive some recognition for everything they do.

The ultimate winners will be selected by our judging panel after the nomination closing date of Friday March 31, 2017 and invited to a special gala celebration event to receive their award.

If you know a mum, child, grandparent or dad of the year, have a favourite family restaurant or place you love to visit, or your family have received outstanding service or care, then why not help them receive the acknowledgement they so much deserve and take a few minutes to nominate them for an award?

These awards have been created for you, Ni4kids readers, to give you an opportunity to say thank you to a family member, business or organisation who mean a lot to you.
