The Policy and Public Engagement Awards 2019 held by The University of Nottingham recently took place, “These awards aim to recognise the excellent work by researchers and academics on all campuses in achieving policy impact and engaging the public with current research.”

One of the respected awards open for nomination was the Keystone Award, “The keystone award recognises a non-academic member of staff who has been instrumental in supporting the delivery of successful policy impact or public engagement work.” – University of Nottingham.

Lou Rudkin, who was a key part of the development of our ‘It’s Tricky to Talk’ mental health campaign, was nominated for her work with Nottingham Forest Community Trust, for encouraging football fans to talk more openly about their mental health.

Congratulations to Lou, who won the Keystone Award and thank you from all at The Trust for your contribution and commitment to supporting our ‘It’s Tricky To Talk’ campaign.
