Have you worked with a victim or witness who deserves recognition for their courage? Nominations are being accepted until Friday 13 September for the National Black Crown Prosecution Association’s (NBCPA) 2019 Profile in Courage award.
The award celebrates an individual who has demonstrated exemplary courage, who has put themselves at risk far and above what would normally be expected of a victim or witness involved in proceedings, or whose assistance to the criminal justice system has been of benefit to the community at large.
Previous recipients of the award include the campaigner Doreen Lawrence, whose son Stephen Lawrence was murdered in a racist attack in south east London in 1993, and Kara Hoyte, who suffered a terrible hammer attack with permanent brain injuries caused by her ex-partner Mario Celaire.
The winner will be recognised at the NBCPA’s annual conference in October.
Please send your nominations to the NBCPA no later than Friday 13 September, showing how the nominee meets the criteria and why they should receive the Profile in Courage Award (maximum 300 words). If you have any queries or require further information, please email us.
