Care Forum Wales
Care Forum Wales, which represents over 450 health and social care providers, sponsored The Aloud Charity’s intergenerational project, Home for Christmas, in eight care homes in North and South Wales. Only Boys Aloud choirs from the local areas rehearsed in the homes for two weeks, welcoming the residents to take part, before performing a concert for them and their families. The judges agreed that the project encouraged community interaction and enriched lives.
Horizon Nuclear Power
Horizon’s sponsorship of Pontio’s Profi project is in its 5th year. Focussed on Year 12 pupils from Gwynedd and Anglesey who may face challenges such as lack of confidence or support, Profi develops their potential through the use of theatre and art. Almost 250 young people have benefitted from it to date, improving their life skills and employment prospects. Profi is now an integral part of Horizon’s Education Strategy and the judges were struck by the ongoing impact of the project.
