Awards Banner

For our first ‘Social Value for Future Generations Awards’, had some incredibly high-quality entries, making the judging process particularly difficult. Nonetheless, we have chosen some to recognise 13 outstanding organisations delivering amazing solutions for communities in Wales. The judges were particularly impressed with how many organisations had embedded the principles of Future Generations into their decision making as well as focusing on providing real data showing that they are walking the walk as well as talking about it!
