Shoreline Housing Partnership has gone through to the next round of a national competition that highlights the important community work carried out by social landlords above and beyond providing homes.
The Community Impact Awards, organised by the National Housing Federation, recognise the vast range of neighbourhood projects - from anti-social behaviour initiatives to support for older people - run by housing associations.
Shoreline’s Cabourne Road regeneration project was shortlisted by a panel of tenant judges for improving neighbourhoods – through neighbourhood clean-ups, a multi-agency community house, bricklaying apprenticeship programme and the establishment of a tenant and resident association who provide young peoples’ diversionary activities.
The best in category and overall regional winner will be announced at a ceremony in Leeds on Tuesday 9 October 2012
Shoreline chief executive Tony Bramley said: “We’re delighted to have been selected for the next stage of the Community Impact Awards. It’s even more special to be chosen by a panel of residents living in social housing – they know first-hand the difference housing associations can make.
“Every day our employees give their best to help people and families in their local communities, so it’s nice for them to be recognised for their hard work - but it's much more than just about our employees as local residents are the real drivers for improvement here and without them nothing could be achieved. The local award ceremony will be a great occasion that shows all their efforts do not go unnoticed.”
The national winner of the Community Impact Awards, which are sponsored by Morrison and 24housing magazine, will be announced early next year.
