"The Health & Wellbeing Awards are an opportunity to celebrate the very best of public health in the UK. Through very challenging circumstances, the public health community has achieved outstanding results and it is important to recognise and celebrate this. We received an incredible number of entrants this year spanning the breadth and depth of public health, from local authorities to charities to businesses, offering innovative and best practice approaches championing the public’s health and helping to improve people’s lives. I would like to congratulate and express my gratitude to all the entrants and winners, and the assessors and judging panel for their contributions.”

Graham Rushbrook, Chair of the RSPH Health & Wellbeing Awards Programme said

“The Health & Wellbeing Awards celebrate a broad range of public health interventions and responses. They are a recognition of the interventions that demonstrate a deep understanding of what impacts health and wellbeing in individuals, family groups and communities. Winning a Health & Wellbeing Award really does show the incredible impact an organisation is making and has helped in securing new funding, building new partnerships and ultimately in helping with the long-term sustainability of their many projects and programmes.”
