Impact Award

We do many great things as an Institute but it wouldn’t be possible to do some of it without our Branches and Groups.  In 2017 the Impact award was launched to  seek out activities/innovations organised by our Branches and Groups and highlight where they had made an impact in IFST’s strategic priorities.
