While the Butler Trust Annual Awards focus on outstanding individuals working in custodial and community justice settings across the UK, our #HiddenHeroes campaign celebrates the workforce as a whole.

They perform a critical and incredibly challenging public service, yet because they work largely out of sight – and literally, in the case of prisons, IRCs and approved premises, behind closed doors – they can often feel forgotten; and the public they serve know little about them or the extraordinary jobs they do.

Our #HiddenHeroes campaign helps to shine a light on the dedicated, and highly skilled, men and women who work in our criminal justice system; and #HiddenHeroes Day – at the end of September each year – is a chance to say a heartfelt thank you for all they do, and show them that they may be hidden, but they are not forgotten.
