Welcome to the Families First Awards

Being a family business ourselves we appreciate the pressures on the modern family.  This is why we seek to recognise and honor those individuals and businesses who make family life that little bit easier or more special.

Saying thank you...

The Families First Awards have become the go-to recommendation for the family industry in Northern Ireland and beyond.  This is your opportunity to tell the world about someone or maybe a business or service provider who has made your family life that little bit easier. Our awards ceremonies are full gala evenings packed with great entertainment, gourmet food, and of course huge amounts of pride.

What our award winners have said...

Victoria Park PS was nominated by our parents for a number of categories. We went on to be finalists and won a number of awards in the Spring and then the Summer awards nights. The awards have boosted the morale of the entire school family, staff, parents and children. We were overwhelmed by how parents took part and sent wonderful comments in their votes to Family First to make us winners.

Being nominated and being awarded a finalist at the Families First Awards was a massive boost to my staff's confidence as well as being something to be proud of and show off to new and returning patrons to our tea room.
Cilla Gregg - Proprieter, The Tea Room (Finaghy)
We have been attending the Families First Awards for around six years now. I find that they encourage and motivate my team to strive to be the best that they can for both my business, and for the children in our care.

About Families First

We have spent almost the last decade providing a one stop portal for families across Ireland (North and South) and beyond.  Whether it be through our website, our newspaper, or our hugely successful awards ceremonies.

We feel that we can offer a personal recommendation for any of our award nominees or winners, this is because a member of our small team personally visits and assesses each of them on their merits.  We feel that we can be the bridge between the service providers and the service users (you), offering impartial, honest opinions.

So use our site, nominate and vote for those you feel deserving, contact us, tell your friends, and be welcomed into our family.


Warmest wishes,

Ann, Jennie, Tony, and Emily
