After a successful first two years, Skills for Justice has announced that the 2024 awards ceremony will take place this September at the Queen Elizabeth II (QEII) Centre in London. Previously held in the autumn, the decision to move the ceremony to earlier in the year is being made to encourage further involvement from leading figures within the justice sector; the event has previously been attended by the likes of Michelle Jarman-Howe, COO of the Probation Service (HMPPS), and the Rt Hon Alex Chalk KC MP, Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice.

Nominations are due to open in late spring, with finalists being announced and invited to the ceremony during the summer.

Jon Czul, Head of Consultancy and Research at Skills for Justice said:

“As the only programme designed to celebrate the amazing contributions made by justice sector support staff working across all agencies, The Inspire Justice Awards are fast becoming a highlight of the sector’s events calendar. Following the phenomenal success of the 2023 awards, which enjoyed support from colleagues working across the criminal justice system, I’m excited to see who our nominees will be this year.”


About the awards

Run by Skills for Justice, and sponsored by Unison and SFJ Awards, these awards aim to celebrate under recognised, hard-working people in the UK’s criminal justice system. These dedicated individuals and teams, often overlooked, contribute to the smooth running of vital services every day and the Inspire Justice Awards provide the opportunity to recognise and honour them.
