Applications open for UK’s leading public health awards scheme

The Royal Society for Public Health Health & Wellbeing Awards are back and open for applicationsAfter two years, The RSPH Health & Wellbeing Awards are back and open for applications. The Royal Society for Public Health is the oldest public health body in the world and the Awards have been a key date in the sector’s calendar since they first launched in 2014.

The Awards, which are completely free to enter, are the UK’s leading awards scheme for individuals and organisations that are working to promote better health and wellbeing across a range of settings and workplaces.

The Awards are open to individuals and organisations working in all sectors and in settings such as workplaces, schools, care homes, hospitals and in the community.

Applicants have until Friday 12 April (5pm) to submit. The applications will then be judged by a panel of experts that are specialists in each of the six categories. The winner will be announced at an Awards ceremony on the 28th of November in London.

Open to applications from across the UK, the Awards span six categories that are designed to account for the sheer breadth of public health related projects and programmes.

Winners of the six categories will also be entered into the prestigious Public Health Minister’s Award which has been developed by the RSPH and the Department of Health. The winner will be announced at the ceremony on the 28th.

William Roberts, CEO, Royal Society for Public Health: “We’re thrilled that the Awards are back for 2024. It is one of the only dates in the calendar year when we can come together and celebrate the amazing contributions to protecting the health and wellbeing of the public that we know happens day in day out in communities across the UK.

“Public health is everyone’s responsibility, these Awards are about recognising and celebrating the innovative ways people are stepping up and making a difference despite the huge challenges we know they are facing.

“The team have been working hard to make this year’s process as easy as possible for applicants. We encourage you to apply, and we look forward to reading your applications.”
