Consumer protection ‘heroes’ celebrated with national awards
The Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI) proudly presents this year’s champions of consumer protection and trading standards to be celebrated with the presentation of a national ‘Hero Award’ on Wednesday 20 June, at One Great George Street.
The CTSI Hero Award celebrates individuals or groups of people whose outstanding contribution towards consumer protection in our communities has made a significant impact. Every year, the Institute is inspired by the stories of nominees throughout the country whose bravery, altruism and hard work often goes unnoticed.
Winners this year include a house-hold named champion of consumer rights, national and local organisations who’ve had a large impact on the consumer protection landscape, and scam victims who took positive steps to raise awareness and protect vulnerable people.
Chief Executive at CTSI, Leon Livermore, said: “I’m humbled and inspired by members of our profession, people in our communities and businesses working together to help protect not only the vulnerable, but society as a whole. It’s my privilege to award our winners and call them what they are; heroes.”
The Hero Awards 2018 are sponsored by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute College of Fellows.
Bob Wright, Chairman of the Trustees, College of Fellows said: “Highlighting the dangers from scams to a wider audience and the efforts that Trading Standards colleagues and others are making to combat them, fits well within the aims of the College of Fellows. We are delighted to be able to support the CTSI Hero Awards.”
