Awards and

Spraoi agus Spórt is proud to be a multi-award winning social enterprise. This year alone, we have already secured three awards:

  • A Gold Award for Best Disability Access & Inclusion Initiative at the recent All-Ireland Community & Council Awards. This award was for our Alternative Respite Programme, which offers over 2,000 hours of alternative respite annually
  • A Silver Award for Best Community Based Initiative, also at the All-Ireland Community & Council Awards. This was for Project Cineál, our response to Covid and the lockdown, which initially shut down our services. But we responded by developing online services, courses and classes, a helpline, foodbank, grocery, and pharmacy collection services.
  • An After School Club of the Year for Ireland at the international Prestige Awards. These awards celebrate the businesses and individuals that consistently offer excellent products and services in their country.
