Wherry shortlisted for Innovation Award
Wherry Housing Association has been shortlisted in the Housing Innovation Awards ‘Most Innovative Use of Community Engagement’ category.
The Housing Innovation Awards celebrate new ways of working and highlight examples of inventive and original schemes and services. Wherry is one of only six nominations from across the country to have been shortlisted.
Wherry has introduced a number of new ways to promote and generate engagement with its customers including the Community Credits Scheme, which offers residents points for getting involved in community activities that can be exchanged to ‘buy’ improvements to local areas and services.
It is committed to working closely with its customers with Resident Involvement and Community Engagement forming an integral part of the development of Wherry’s services.
Sue Stavers, Managing Director, Wherry Housing Association, said:
“We think we’ve got some excellent schemes for involving our residents in the community and are very pleased that our work in this area has been recognised by being shortlisted for this award.”
The winner of the award will be announced at a ceremony which will take place on the 13th February in London.
