Housing & Care 21 could scoop best landlord title
Housing & Care 21 is in the running to be named the UK’s best landlord after it made the final of the prestigious UK Housing Awards 2016.
The awards, which recognise outstanding work by housing organisations to improve the lives of people in their communities, are organised by the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) and Inside Housing magazine.
We are one of five landlords to make the final of the top gong - Outstanding Landlord of the Year.
The winners will be revealed at a ceremony at the Lancaster London Hotel on 26 April where impressionist and comedian, Rory Bremner will present the 20th anniversary awards.
Our chief executive, Bruce Moore, said: “This is fantastic news for the organisation and recognises the excellent year we have had.
“Our place in the final represents key changes to the structure of the organisation. We developed more properties than ever in 2015 and became by far the UK’s leading provider of extra care. We also made key improvements elsewhere in the organisation which involved a lot of very hard work put in by colleagues.
“Our fingers are firmly crossed ahead of the final in April.”
CIH chief executive Terrie Alafat said: “The UK Housing Awards recognise the great work being done by housing professionals and organisations across the industry, but they also push us all to do better as a sector. We hope the achievements of our finalists will inspire others as they aim to provide the best possible services for residents and communities.
“Congratulations to all of the organisations that have been shortlisted, and best of luck for the 20th anniversary ceremony – win or lose your work will help inspire us all to improve.”
Emma Maier, editor of Inside Housing, said: “The quality of the entries rose again this year so even to get this far is an amazing achievement. In the face of some really stiff competition, Housing & Care 21 has shown it is performing at the highest level - well done! Being our 20th anniversary means the evening will be even more memorable and we have some great celebrations planned.”
