Hardman Award Winners

The Hardman Trust was founded in 1994 for the purpose of assisting prisoners to equip themselves to lead law-abiding lives by extending training and educational opportunities before release. Awards are given to a number of prisoners twice a year to help purchase training courses or tools.

The Awards are presented during a ceremony to which the award winners and their guests are invited. During the ceremony a citation is read out in testament to the prisoner's conduct and achievements and a commendatory certificate signed by the Lord Chief Justice is presented. A Keith Bromley Award is dedicated to the provision of trade tools and equipment or assistance in starting up a small business.

The Bromley Trust has been supporting the Hardman Trust from an early period of its development. When approached the chair of the Hardman Trust, Jim McKinnon stated: "The Hardman Trust would be honoured to name an award after a man who showed so much concern and compassion for prisoners and who was a great support to the Hardman Trust over the years."

The Hardman Trust will present Keith Bromley Awards up to a total value of £5000 per year.
