The Civic Community Awards ceremony took place at Porchester Hall on Tuesday 27th March.
The Awards recognise the efforts of Westminster’s community heroes - the people and organisations who dedicate themselves to helping others in the community.
Cllr Lee Rowley, who hosted the awards, said, “Tonight’s winners are leading the way in doing their bit for the local community, and to foster a strong sense of community in Westminster, it’s vital that we recognise the great work already going on.
"It’s particularly encouraging to see young people playing a prominent part in the winners list, in helping to tackle anti-social behaviour and youth violence in their communities.”
See below for a full list of winners, runners-up and commended nominees.
You can also find out more about the winners and why they won as well as seeing some of the photos from the night.
The full cost of these awards was covered by our main sponsors, Veolia. Winners and runners-up received Olympics tickets donated by the West End partnership. And use of Porchester Hall was kindly provided free-of-charge by GLL, who run Westminster’s sports and leisure facilities. Our thanks go to all our sponsors for their generosity and support.
