Now that the winners of the awards have been chosen, ICON will start working with Victim Support Malta for a successful implementation of its project ‘Watch Out’ for safer communities in Malta.
Social Impact Awards Winner: Project WO (Watch Out)
Victim Support Malta’s ‘Project Watch Out’ was one of the winners of the Social Impact Awards 2016 and will receive ICON’s contribution of €10,000 worth of digital marketing services, mentoring and consultation. The project aims to encourage community-building and social engagement in Malta by addressing the two issues of crime and social disengagement through neighbourhood watch schemes. ICON will be supporting Project Watch Out through phase 1, which will focus on enhancing people’s knowledge of neighbourhood watch through specialised training.

About the Social Impact Awards
Watch Ms. Louisa Attard, Assistant Director of the Inspirasia Foundation, present a new initiative for social responsibility in Malta – the Social Impact Awards. Organised by the Inspirasia Foundation and the Gasan Foundation, the project aims to become a yearly event which will bring the sectors of business and not-for-profit closer together for mutual benefit:
The objective of the awards is to bring businesses and philanthropists closer together to encourage positive social impact in Malta and an exchange of knowledge, expertise and resources between the private and non-profit sectors. The initiative gathers donors and supporters from the local private sector and invites organisations and individuals to submit proposals for social projects which have the opportunity to win grants from the awards. The projects are presented and reviewed by an objective panel of judges, and the selected winners are awarded financial and/or non-financial support to implement their proposal.
