Judging comments by Vincent Hanly

❝The winner of the Cohesive Communities Award goes to CUBE Knox and Wells.

The judges were very impressed with the work of CUBE and Knox and Wells in their collaboration to try and tackle mental health in adults in the Community and with their workforce. This is a great example of the private sector delivering social value in its communities working with CUBE.

CUBE is a Barry based volunteer-based charity with a team of specialist’s who’ve come together to make a difference for families living with or affected by mental health, suicide, grief and loss, domestic abuse and substances.

The key deliverable of this project involved promoting joined-up working between the private sector and community Groups – sharing skills, expertise and resources for the benefit of the community. This submission demonstrated exemplary joined-up working with community groups and local businesses – helping to achieve high-level deliverables of The Future Generations Act (Wales) 2015. This was in response to the concerns of a focus on mental health in adults and the role Knox and Wells and CUBE have played to help improve this in communities and with their own workforce.❞
