The Ruth Mann and Kathy Biggar Trophies, named in their memory and launched in 2021, recognise notable practice with scope for wider roll-out, in custodial and community settings, respectively.
[Please note: With their focus on practice rather than people, the Ruth Mann and Kathy Biggar Trophies are distinct from our Annual Awards, which recognise outstanding individuals.]
To help share notable practice more widely, all submissions for the two trophies are added to our online Knowledge Exchange:
Ruth Mann Trophy submissions (custodial settings)
Kathy Biggar Trophy submissions (community settings)
