Stockport Homes has been named as a finalist in three categories at this year's National Federation of ALMOs (NFA) Awards. The winners will be announced at a ceremony at the Midland Hotel, Manchester on 16 July.
Stockport Homes has been shortlisted in the following categories:

- Most innovative social enterprise partnership for its partnership with B4Box which has provided jobs and training for local residents
- Most effective communications campaign for its promotion of Penny Lane Pantry, a new not-for-profit community store for residents
The NFA awards recognise the most innovative projects from around the country, and honour the commitment and dedication of ALMO staff who work hard to create sustainable homes and prosperous communities. The awards also celebrate ALMOs working in partnership with others to create opportunities to positively improve the quality of life for their tenants and residents.
The ALMO sector has proven itself to be a diverse and responsive sector. These awards offer an opportunity to showcase the fantastic work currently being delivered by ALMOs and their local authorities across England.
Roger Phillips, Chair of Stockport Homes' Board said, “We are delighted to be shortlisted in three categories at this year’s NFA awards. The projects we have been shortlisted for emphasise that Stockport Homes are about much more than housing, we support tenants to get online, get into employment or training and access affordable food plus much more!”
