WAES CCL Team Wins Westminster Way Award 2024

On Wednesday 28 February, the WAES Community and Cultural Learning (CCL) Team had the honor of attending the Westminster Way Staff Awards at Porchester Hall, as a nominee. The event aimed to honor and commend the efforts of its partners in the Westminster community.

This year, an impressive 391 nominations flooded in, showcasing the dedication and impact of various teams. Among these nominees, the WAES CCL Team stood out, earning recognition for their outstanding work on the Green Live Learning Lab project and other activities in the community. Competing against esteemed contenders such as Changing Future: Specialist Team, Climate Emergency Team Procurement and Commercial Services, and Town Planning and Building Control: Sustainability Team, the WAES CCL Team emerged victorious, claiming the coveted Team of the Year award.


"Achieving recognition for our team and being shortlisted for Team of the Year was a significant milestone, both personally and collectively. Celebrating this accomplishment brought immense joy to me and my team. It was a gratifying experience to see our efforts acknowledged by the council, shedding light on the often unseen work we do in the community. The highlight of the year was undeniably the Green Live Learning Lab, a project that supported residents and families from the most deprived areas in engaging with green initiatives. The positive impact of the Green Live Learning Lab stands as a testament to the possibilities that arise through genuine partnerships." - Sabirah Ali  (Head of Community and Cultural Learning)

WAES is proud to launch the Green Skills Innovation Centre at our Lisson Grove centre, as part of a Greater London Authority and Westminster City Council effort to lead the UK's transition to Net Zero. We have a range of planned courses that will aid to achieve the initiative and tackle green issues within the Westminster community. The centre will build upon the success of the Green Live Learning Lab.
