Five star success for Housing & Care 21 in team awards
We have been shortlisted in five categories of the most prestigious awards recognising teams in the housing sector.
Four teams from across the organisation are finalists in the 2016 Housing Heroes Awards; national gongs run by Inside Housing Magazine and the Chartered Institute of Housing which recognise the best housing teams in the UK.
Our Asset Management team made the final in two categories; Central Services Team of the Year and Maintenance Team of the Year.
Meanwhile the team at Goldfield Court (pictured) made the final in the Care and Support Team of the Year category and our Resident Engagement and Wellbeing team are finalists in the Frontline Team of the Year.
Doris Land, a resident at Mulberry Court, made the final in the Tenant of the Year category.
Our five places in the final makes us the most nominated housing provider in the country and we will find out if we have been successful at a ceremony in Manchester on June 27.
Chief executive, Bruce Moore, said: "This is fantastic news and a very significant achievement on the part of all of the teams and individuals who have made the final.
"Last year was a very successful year for us and it is particularly pleasing to see teams from across the organisation represented in the final. It is a testament to the strength in depth we have but most importantly it is reward for the very hard work which these teams have done over the last year.
"They have all played their part in what we've achieved and it is great to see them get the recognition they deserve. We look forward to the final."
The Asset Management team's place in the final represents the work they have done to put together our new investment plan and property standards and overseeing a newly devolved repairs process across our courts.
Our Resident Engagement and Wellbeing team oversaw our new customer conferences, helped residents gain more than £600k in income and put together an award-winning customer magazine.
Goldfield Court's place in the final recognises their approach to providing a high standard of care in the wake of a very difficult incident which was out of their control.
While Doris Land's endless efforts to represent her fellow residents in spite of a number of very serious health conditions landed her a place.
