The Annual NWG Unsung Hero Awards

The annual NWG Unsung Hero Awards 2018 dinner is a wonderful evening spent celebrating the achievements of our network members through our Unsung Hero awards ceremony.

We look forward to reading all the nominations.

The aim of the NWG Unsung Hero Awards is to recognise and reward individuals or teams who have made significant, ongoing contribution to tackling child sexual exploitation, either through direct interactions with young people, their support of staff within teams or projects or their contributions to an innovative method of working.

  • Working Together Award – Local Authority and community groups who are working together to achieve positive change
  • Helping Hand Award – Outstanding contribution for those who work tirelessly to improve the response to children
  • Safer Environments Award – for those who work to improve their community                                 and,                                                                                                                                                                               on behalf of the National Police Chiefs Council;
