The Hennell Award

The Hennell Award for Innovation and Excellence in Dementia Care was launched in memory of the late Brian Hennell at the ADS 5th birthday celebration event on 14th May 2014. His wife June has kindly sponsored this award which will recognise people who have made a significant contribution to promoting person-centred care.

This award is to celebrate the achievements of an individual or team who have shown their ability to implement positive change for people living with dementia.

It is open to anyone who has attended a course facilitated by the Association for Dementia Studies or who is studying for the Foundation Degree in Dementia at Worcester.

Nominations can be made by self, colleagues, course tutors and any individuals or carers affected by dementia.

The judges base their decisions on the narrative provided on a Nomination Form and supporting information and evidence.

The call for nominations for the 2018 Hennell Award has now closed. 

In 2014 the award was won by Emma Hawk, a Mental Health Care Home Specialist from Oxfordshire and in 2015 it was awarded to Christina Hulse, Dementia Lead at Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Trust. In 2016 it was awarded to April Dobson, Head of Dementia Innovation at the Abbeyfield Society. More information about the projects that the winners have led can be found here.
