2022 Excellence Awards

Recognising the exceptional and inspiring work from Certitude colleagues and teams during 2022

Colleagues from across Certitude were welcomed on Tuesday 13 December, to our first in-person Excellence Awards ceremony since 2019. In his first year as Chair of Certitude’s board, Scott Greenhalgh welcomed everybody to the Shaw Theatre in London, adding that he was delighted to be “Coming together to celebrate the many colleagues across Certitude who make a difference every day”.

With over 130 nominations this year, there have been some truly exceptional and inspiring work from colleagues and teams during 2022.

Chief Executive, Aisling Duffy added “Loving is one of Certitude’s pillars, and I’ve seen this reflected so beautifully in so many of the nominations this year. A powerful love for the work we do, the people we support and the difference we make. And because of that love we’re braver to take on the challenges in our work.”
