The other big winner was Tukes, a project based in North East Lincolnshire which helps people with mental health problems successfully move into sustainable employment and gain a variety of qualifications to enhance their portfolios. Tukes is part of NAViGO Health and Social Care Community Interest Company, and as well as claiming the Overall Winner Award, the project also won the Complex Needs prize. All of the organisations and initiatives that won individual categories were considered for the overall award, and Tukes beat eleven other category winners to win the top prize.

David Brindle, The Guardian's Public Services Editor, said: "Tukes must be one of the most imaginative and inspirational ideas in our public services. Involving people in the service they are using gives them a truly meaningful stake in it and in this case helps set them firmly on the road to recovery.
