Nominations for the Howard League Community Awards 2018 are now open
The Howard League for Penal Reform gives annual awards for the country’s most successful community projects encouraging desistance from crime. Projects which help to keep people out of the criminal justice system, by providing alternative, proportionate, effective and targeted interventions will help reduce the risk of re-offending.
These annual awards celebrate best practice in diversionary work and champion work in the community that challenges and changes people for the better – be it with children; women; mental health programmes or restorative approaches. The awards recognise projects and organisations whose work and practice is delivered above and beyond normal service delivery.
The awards now also include a category for work which seeks to prevent the criminalisation of children in residential care, as part of the Howard League’s programme on this issue.
Award categories include Restorative Approaches.
Nominations close on 24 July 2018.
The winners will be announced at a national conference on Wednesday 14 November 2018.
