Recognise the unsung Personal Safety Heroes in your community

Monday 30 January 2017

Do you know someone who has made a positive difference to the safety of those around them? Perhaps they’ve influenced the way an organisation deals with personal safety? Maybe they’ve gone above and beyond what’s expected in their own community to keep people safe?

Whether it’s running an inspirational campaign or improving safety in the workplace, if you know an unsung hero (or heroes) nominate them for a 2017 National Personal Safety Award now. The deadline for entries is 9 February

Created by the charity Suzy Lamplugh Trust, last year’s award winners came from public and private sector organisations across the UK;  Andrew Page Group (Safer Workplace) Bovis Homes (Personal Safety Champion)  Fitzrovia Youth in Action (Young Person’s Safety) Manchester Mind (Inspiring Individual) Merseytravel (National Personal Safety Day) Pendleton HomeWatch (Safer Community) Staffordshire University (Safer Campus) USDAW (Best Safety Campaign).

Dave Cole of Andrew Page Group said:

“Last year’s recognition at the awards was a major highlight in our business. We were delighted to not only be shortlisted for the award but to actually win it was very special. Our aim at Andrew Page is simple, we strive to provide a safe working environment for all and are dedicated in protecting our most important asset ‘our people’”

Sinead O'Connor of Manchester Mind said,

“Winning the Inspiring Individual Award 2016 was such a boost for our work here at Manchester Mind. It has raised our profile with funders and helped us to promote and communicate the safety elements of our work.”

Hosted by TV presenter Jacqui Hames, in central London on 23 March 23, the UK’s National Personal Safety Awards are a golden opportunity to showcase the difference your organisation is making. Jacqui said:

“Feeling safe and secure at home, work and when exploring our world is fundamental to our sense of wellbeing. I’m delighted those within our communities who offer support, information and guidance on personal safety and security are being championed. To see these unsung heroes being acknowledged is humbling and inspiring. If there’s someone you know who deserves this honour, don’t hesitate to nominate them. They deserve a thank you and their stories will inspire others.”
