The award is a great achievement and was given for Professor Nick Ellison's general contribution to social policy in terms of his research, his substantial engagement with the SPA in a variety of roles including Chair of the Association, and his leadership activities, running three departments. The Association's annual conference took place in July at the University of Durham.

As an ex-Head of Department in SPSW, Nick hopes that the award will add to the Department's already excellent profile as a leader in UK and international social policy research and teaching.
