RSPH Organisation and Partnership Awards – Recognising Today’s Health Promotion! – Call for applicants 2012
The Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) is calling for applications for the 2012 Health Promotion and Community Well Being Organisation and Partnership Awards.
In a changing public health landscape, health promotion still features as a mainstream approach to improve health and address the wider social determinants of health. The Awards scheme is an excellent opportunity for Local Authorities, non-governmental and private sector organisations to assess their Health Promotion Practice and to receive public recognition.
Why should you apply?
The RSPH Health Promotion Awards offer applicants a high professional and political profile. Award-winners are drawn to the attention of key opinion-formers and their work showcased at Conferences and in publications.
An RSPH Award will provide external endorsement of your achievements as an exemplar organisation for health promotion. It will:
- Strengthen your profile in the community and with the local media
- Be developmental for your organisation and give you the opportunity to reflect on your progress, with advice and support from your peers
- Help to strengthen the recognition of the importance of health promotion and community well-being nationally and locally
- Motivate and encourage staff and help with recruitment
- Provide evidence for external agencies which monitor standards
- Provide evidence in support of tenders for commissioning
The aim of the Awards is to recognize achievement in the development and implementation of health promotion and community wellbeing strategies and initiatives, and in support for the workforce.
What are the criteria? How will your organisation be assessed?
The level and depth of assessment is tailored to the size and capacity of the organisation or partnership applying. It is based on a portfolio of existing evidence, together with a written commentary. Your application will be considered by a group of assessors and discussed with you. We want the awards to offer a developmental and supportive process. The criteria are based on:
- Board level leadership and high-level management
- Effective strategy and business planning processes
- Capacity and capability to deliver
- Health promoting workplace(s)
Whom should I contact?

The Awards are open to organisations and partnerships in the health, local authority, non-governmental and private sectors in the four UK countries and the Republic of Ireland.
