The two commendation categories are:
- Reducing Inequalities at Community Level
- Sustainable Development
Entering the Health & Wellbeing Awards is the only route to the Public Health England Commendations – they cannot be applied for separately or independently. The commended organisations are selected by a Public Health England Award Committee against strict critieria that ensures that the projects are exemplars in each commendation's field.
The Health & Wellbeing Awards 2018 is now closed for entries.
