Minister’s verdict on the Bevan Foundation

July 13th 2017

A Welsh Government Minister has described the Bevan Foundation as ‘refreshing, intelligent and challenging’.

Speaking on Tuesday, 11th June 2017 in the National Assembly for Wales debate on the work of the Valleys Task Force, Alun Davies, Minister for the Welsh Language and Lifelong Learning said:

“I’ve always found the Bevan Foundation a refreshing, intelligent and challenging contribution to all of our work in the Government.”

The Minister, who chairs the Valleys Task Force, continued:

“I always value the reports and the analysis that the Bevan Foundation provides.  I also enjoy the challenge that they provide to us as well, and long may that continue.”

The Bevan Foundation has been challenging the Valleys Task Force to implement new and innovative approaches to create prosperity in the area, including adopting growth hubs, supporting the foundational economy and improving the skills of young people and adults.

Alun Davies was a trustee of the Bevan Foundation from October 2008 until May 2011. He has played no role in the Foundation’s business since his resignation six years ago.
