Top three finalists in each category for NCPC Awards released

14 February 2017
The top three finalists for each category for the NCPC Awards have been released.

NCPC Chief Executive Claire Henry says: “It’s great to see that we’ve had so many entries. I thought we had a strong level last year, but this year is even better, which says something about the range of great end of life initiatives  going on. It also shows how much people want to win an NCPC award. We want to recognise the great work going on, but also to inspire other people to try new ideas. The entries we’ve had contain so much passion, energy and imagination, and it wasn’t easy to pick a shortlist from such a strong field.”
