How can we help you?

Activist of the year awards

Are you a passionate activist campaigning on health in England, Wales or Northern Ireland? If so, you could be our activist of the year.

Nominations for our Activist of the year awards are now open (until 9am on 1 October), with winners announced on 15 October.

There is an award for an activist with a learning disability, and an award for an ally (e.g. a healthcare professional, family member or support worker).

The winners will be chosen by our Treat me well steering group, and will get a chance to speak in Parliament in front of MPs and Ministers, in November.

You can nominate yourself, or someone else today!
