Celebrating and promoting the best in UK prisons, probation and youth justice




While the Butler Trust Annual Awards focus on outstanding invdividuals, our #HiddenHeroes campaign celebrates and promotes the role of everyone working in UK prisons, IRCs, probation and youth justice settings.

They perform a critical but incredibly challenging public service – never more so than during the Covid-19 pandemic – yet because they work largely out of sight and literally, in the case of prisons and IRCs, behind closed doors, they can often feel forgotten, and the public they serve know little about them or what 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 to show them that while they may be hidden, they are not forgotten.
