MRS President's Medal 2017


16-10-2017

Three outstanding organisations who have been using research to make an impact on citizen engagement, mental health awareness and refugee policy have been nominated for one of MRS’ most prestigious awards.

The President's Medal is awarded annually to an organisation that has made an extraordinary contribution to society through research. This year's nominees were chosen by President of MRS Jan Gooding, Co-Chairs of MRS Crispin Beale and Danny Russell and CEO of MRS Jane Frost CBE.

The aim of the first nominee, Making All Voices Count, is to push towards effective democratic governance in Ghana, Indonesia, Kenya, the Philippines, South Africa and Tanzania. Through its Research, Evidence and Learning arm – led by the Institute for Development Studies – it is building a unique base of evidence on the technology that works for listening to the citizen voice and encouraging transparency and accountability.

42nd Street is an innovative Greater Manchester mental health charity which has been providing free and confidential services to young people who are experiencing difficulties with their emotional wellbeing for 36 years. Their team of Peer Ambassadors, all aged 13-25, listen to others and meet regularly with key staff to share their observations. The charity then uses this evidence to influence local, regional and national policy and practice.

The Refugee Studies Centre at the University of Oxford aims to build knowledge and understanding of the causes and effects of forced migration in order to help improve the lives of some of the world’s most vulnerable people. The Centre draws directly upon the knowledge and experiences of humanitarian practitioners and refugees themselves to ensure it remains at the forefront of today’s most critical debates on the subject.

The winner will be announced at the MRS Awards on 4 December at Supernova London. Tickets can be purchased here.

A full list of finalists for the other MRS Awards can be found here.
