Community Awards 2018

These are the Howard League for Penal Reform 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.
