Working Together Award
Sponsored by The Forces in Mind Trust
About this Award…
An award to honour a group of people, team or organisation that has demonstrated an enduring commitment to a collaborative approach, engaging with each other and other external organisations to support the sector within the wider military community.
The judges will be looking for evidence of:
- An engaging story behind the people, team or organisation, why they came together, the identified needs they are meeting and quantified demands for the service.
- What challenges (both operational and personal) have been faced and how they have been overcome.
- The results for the armed forces community that have been achieved through the commitment and collaborative approach.
- The different or unique characteristics of the team work that can set standards of best practice across the sector and therefore makes this nomination special.
This award is suitable for a team.
