One Vision Property Services has come out on top at a prestigious awards ceremony which aims to acknowledge ‘unsung’ heroes in the housing sector.
For the second year running, the Sefton-based repairs and maintenance provider claimed the title of ‘Maintenance Team of the Year’ at the Housing Hero Awards in London.
Since One Vision’s former contractor, Connaught, went into administration at the end of September 2010, the formation of One Vision Property Services has ensured that customers receive an excellent repairs and maintenance service. That has been evidenced once again, by beating the best names in the sector to the coveted award.
Director of Property Services, Paul Broadbent said: “This award is a real testament to how far we have come and wouldn’t have been possible without the commitment and dedication of our staff as well as the support of our customers.”
One Vision Housing also won the award for Tenant Empowerment Team of the Year for their work in involving customers in all that they do.
One Vision are recognised as one of the leaders in tenant involvement and were one of the first housing associations in the North West to be accredited by the Tenant Participatory Advisory Service (TPAS).
Resident Involvement Manager Ann Owens said: “We are delighted to receive this award in recognition of our commitment to ensuring our tenants are empowered and supported in shaping the services One Vision provide.”
This year’s awards were presented by the BBC news presenter Louise Minchin. The awards attracted over 750 people with many industry figureheads – including representatives of the main trade and professional bodies, Government ministers and leading experts from across the housing sector.
The awards follow on from One Vision Housing being acknowledged as the number one organisation to work for in the Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies to work for list.
