Herefordshire Housing shortlisted for UK Housing award 2014
Published by jenp for Herefordshire Housing Ltd in Housing
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.
Now in their 18th year, this year’s awards attracted more than 250 entries from all over the UK.
Herefordshire Housing is now one of six left in the running in the category for Business Transformation of the Year.
Chief Executive, Peter Brown said, “We’ve worked really hard to deliver a wider range of services to our tenants and customers. And that has meant transforming the organisation from top to bottom whilst keeping a close eye on existing service standards.”
The winners will be revealed at a ceremony at the Lancaster London Hotel on 29 April and Marcus Brigstocke has been approached to present the awards. Last year over 650 people attended.
CIH chief executive Grainia Long said: “The UK Housing Awards recognise the excellent and innovative work being done by organisations and individuals across our industry, but perhaps more importantly they help to push up standards and provide inspiration. We all have to do more with less and there is always room for improvement when it comes to providing the best services for residents. We hope the stories behind all the shortlisted finalists will give housing organisations the opportunity to learn from each other.”
“As ever, the quality of the entries we received this year is evident from the fantastic standard of the finalists. I’d like to congratulate all of the organisations that have been shortlisted and wish them best of luck for the ceremony – win or lose their work will help inspire us all to improve."
Stuart Macdonald, 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, Herefordshire Housing has shown it is performing at the highest level - well done!”
