Wellbeing awards: still time to nominate

6 March 2023

There’s still time to nominate colleagues and projects that have made a difference to the wellbeing of officers and staff for a national award.

The annual Oscar Kilo awards recognise the fantastic work that has been done – and continues to be done – to provide wellbeing support across UK policing. Nominations close on March 10.

Derbyshire Police Federation members are being encouraged to put forward colleagues and projects that deserve recognition.

Branch chair Tony Wetton said: “These awards are a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the commitment and determination of our colleagues to support and improve the physical and mental health of officers and staff.

“I’d encourage you to take the time to nominate a colleague, a project, or even yourself if you’ve helped to make a difference.”

Oscar Kilo, the national police wellbeing service, is inviting nominations in seven categories: 

  • Creating the environment
  • Leadership
  • Absence management
  • Mental health
  • Occupational health
  • Personal resilience
  • Protecting the workforce.

There is also a special non-police award for other organisations such as the fire and rescue service, who are working towards completing the Blue Light Wellbeing Framework (BLWF).

The winners will be announced at the awards event this summer.

Visit the Oscar Kilo website for more information on the awards and to nominate yourself, a colleague or a project.
