The awards, he said, "are designed to bring recognition for those actions taken by individuals and teams that contribute to helping the Trust achieve its aim of being an excellent organisation."
The praise offered by Alan Wooderson, chair of the Devon and Cornwall Probation Board, was equally effervescent.
"I am amazed by the quality of people who work for the Trust. I am staggered by how you change peoples lives," he told staff.
