There are only a couple of weeks left to make a nomination for the 2023 Matthew Gallagher Award, so don’t delay!

If someone you know has shown exceptional ability and used their Independent Funeral Directors’ (IFD) College training in a positive way, have risen to a challenge or are considered in some other way, then you should enter by 14 February 2023.

Nominations can come from employers, co-workers, or be self-nominated, and is open to all IFD students and members.

The award is named after inspirational funeral director Matthew Gallagher, who served as a college governor, assessor, and verifier. Matthew had a unique ability to encourage and find something good in every student’s work, and this award is presented in his memory to a student who has overcome challenges to complete IFD College certified units.

Those challenges may be personal, domestic, educational, or physical.

Examples could include setting up a bereavement group, managing a project, taking on in-house induction of new staff and many more.

The winner will be announced at the SAIF AGM weekend in Tunbridge Wells, 2-5 March.
