Awards for Circles UK

Read about the national Awards Circles UK  has won in the  past two years.

The Longford Prize 2010

The Longford Prize recognises the contribution of an individual, group or organisation working in the area of penal or social reform in showing outstanding qualities of humanity, courage, persistence and originality


The Judges made the award “ in recognition of Circles UK’s courage, commitment and innovation in working, on their release from prison, with sex offenders, one of the most marginalised groups in our society. Circles UK brings together voluntary and statutory partners, including victims’ groups, in a constructive alternative response which provides a much greater opportunity for preventing further crime, rehabilitating the offender, and achieving safer communities for us all.”

“With more nominations than ever this year, it’s clear just how much fantastic work takes place within the sector and the effort and commitment that goes into making charities work. It’s vital that we acknowledge this which is why I’m delighted that Circles UK has won the Social care & welfare award. The judges singled out those charities whose excellence in charity management they felt will inspire others. Circles UK is an excellent organisation, the award is richly deserved and I congratulate them on their achievements”
