Kingston’s Celebrating Communities Awards

We were proud to have been nominated alongside EnhanceAble and Kingston Council in the Working in Partnership Award at Kingston’s Celebrating Communities Awards 2024 last night. The award celebrates any partnership that has worked together to achieve great things.

We were nominated for our work to provide a rapid response during the Severe Weather Emergency Protocol (SWEP) last winter.

We worked with EnhanceAble who gave their space and hosted the SWEP for free. EnhanceAble and SPEAR welcomed rough sleepers to EnhanceAble’s Geneva Road day service enabling us to keep vulnerable people safe when temperatures dropped below zero. EnhanceAble made a significant impact on vulnerable people’s lives by hosting the SWEP and the team at EnhanceAble also very generously made a collection and bought food to cook for breakfast for the people staying as guests.

We were disappointed not to win the award, but would like to congratulate RBKares and Refugee Action Kingston wo won the award for their sewing workshop.
