North Wales Housing has been presented with the Supported Living award at the Cymorth Cymru Promoting Independence awards 2012, marking another fantastic win for the organisation.
Members of the NWH Bangor Supported Housing team travelled to the awards ceremony in Cardiff where the winners were announced. The judges were extremely impressed with the work of NWH and the organisation beat strong competition from across Wales.
The award recognises the support NWH deliver to enable vulnerable people to live as independently as possible within the community, exercise control over their lives and enjoy the kind of independence that many of us take for granted.
Cymorth Cymru is the representative body for providers of housing related support, homelessness and care services in Wales and the annual awards are considered an important event within the sector.
Lynne Evans of North Wales Housing said: “This is an amazing win for us and celebrates the hard work, dedication and commitment of a fantastic team.”
