#HiddenHeroes & the Annual Awards

Jun 11, 2019

While you’ve been busy thinking about your Butler Trust nominations for this year, we’ve been busy finishing work on two new publications: a booklet, #HiddenHeroes: The Prison Officer, and a film: #HiddenHeroes: The Probation Officer.

While the media focus on the negative – and staff face very significant challenges every day – there is much to be proud of in our prison and probation services, too – not least our Prison and Probation Officers. Our publications pay tribute to, and celebrate the work of, the frontline staff who make a real difference to the people in their care and the public at large.

A copy of the Prison Officer booklet has just been sent to every Officer in England & Wales; it’s also available as a PDF here and as an e-booklet here (Flash required).

And the Probation Officer film can be viewed on our website here and on YouTube here.

Finally, if you know any #HiddenHeroes where you work, why not nominate them for a Butler Trust Award this year? Nomination forms can be downloaded from our website – www.butlertrust.org.uk/awards – where you can also find more details about the Awards.
