Oscar Kilo awards: put forward a colleague or project

There’s still time for South Wales Police Federation members to nominate colleagues and projects that have made a difference to the wellbeing of officers and staff for a national award.

The annual Oscar Kilo awards recognise the fantastic work that has been done – and continues to be done – to provide wellbeing support across UK policing. Nominations close on 10 March.

Branch chair Steve Treharne said: “There’s a lot of fantastic work being done by a lot of fantastic people to support the wellbeing of South Wales Police officers and staff – and now is the time to shout about it.

“We have a unique role in society so looking after our health and wellbeing is a priority. These awards are a great opportunity to recognise the work being done to support officers and staff so that they can meet the challenges of our profession.

“Please take the time to nominate the colleague, projects, or even yourself, that have helped to make a difference.”

Oscar Kilo, the national police wellbeing service, is inviting nominations in seven categories:

  • Creating the environment
  • Leadership
  • Absence management
  • Mental health
  • Occupational health
  • Personal resilience
  • Protecting the workforce.

There is also a special non-police award for other organisations such as the fire and rescue service, who are working towards completing the Blue Light Wellbeing Framework (BLWF).

The winners will be announced at the awards event this summer.
