Nominations and full criteria to be released September 2023

Following the huge success of its inaugural year, the Gene People Awards is back for 2023!

The Gene People Awards 2023 is an important opportunity to highlight the incredible efforts of individuals and organisations in improving the lives of people affected by a genetic condition. Join us in celebration of the huge impact that the genetic condition community has on the 2.4 million people in the UK living with a genetic condition.

Winners will be confirmed and honoured as part of the Gene People Leadership Symposium 2023 (more details to be shared about the symposium at a later date).

This year, the Gene People Awards is expanding to further categories so that we can give even more recognition to the incredible work happening in the genetic condition community.

We are seeking sponsors for individual categories or for the awards as a whole. Contact Samantha Barber (Gene People Chief Executive) on for more details.
