Howard League Community Awards 2020

  • Date: 20 Oct 2020

  • Location: Online

Successful community projects that reduce crime and transform lives for the better will be honoured with prestigious Howard League Community Awards at our celebratory event.

The Howard League for Penal Reform remains concerned that too many people are still being brought into conflict with the criminal justice system and the problematic implications this has for their future lives.

This event will celebrate innovations in policy and practice in relation to the arrest of women, adults, and children and how they can be diverted to more appropriate services.

Speakers include:

  • Frances Crook, Chief Executive, Howard League for Penal Reform
  • Keith Fraser, Chair, Youth Justice Board
  • Gerry Marshall, Trustee, Howard League for Penal Reform; and Chair, Community Awards judging panel
  • Professor Fergus McNeil, Professor of Criminology and Social Work, University of Glasgow

Winners will be announced and honoured in the following categories: Children in care and care leavers; Criminal justice champion; Liaison and diversion; Policing and adults; Policing and children; Organisation of the year; Restorative approaches; and Women.
