SPIIOW had the privilege of being nominated for an award for its services that it supplies to the Isle of Wight community.
SPIIOW had been shortlisted in the Local Communities category of the Community Action Awards after less than a year of being operational and responding to people with thoughts of suicide.
In the category that SPI were entered into they came 3rd with a very kind donation of £100 with the winner being the well-deserved Freshwater Lifeboat and in second place was the Foodbank – another worthwhile organisation.
Within hours of the event finishing the front line team were called back in to action that evening, showing the need for their services.
If you or someone you know is having thoughts of suicide, you can make contact with our front line intervention team via our contact us page
