WSA Sponsors Housing Awards

The 2011 Housing Heroes take place in May!

Organised by the Inside Housing and the CIH, WSA were pleased to be invited to sponsor one of the award categories for one of the largest awards events for the Housing Sector.

We are sponsoring Frontline Housing Team of the Year, which will celebrate the hard work and achievements of those who are working in customer services and client facing neighbourhood services. As put by Inside Housing, the awards are here to give credit and recognition to the often “unsung heroes” of the sector who are committed everyday to making residents’ lives better.

A quick summary of the event is below taken from the Inside Housing website:

“This year’s awards will be presented by the BBC news presenter George Alagiah. Last year the awards attracted more than 800 people. We expect the 2011 awards to be just as well attended, with many industry figureheads – including representatives of the main trade and professional bodies, Government ministers and leading experts from across the housing sector.”

A few representatives of the WS team and guests will be attending to enjoy the distribution of a number of awards across the following categories:

  1. Financial or procurement team of the year
  2. Development team of the year
  3. Maintenance team of the year
  4. HR team of the year
  5. IT team of the year
  6. Frontline housing team of the year (Sponsored by WSA)
  7. Tenant empowerment team of the year
  8. Ground breaking service team of the year
  9. Support/care team of the year
  10. Inspirational leader of the year
  11. Inspirational mentor of the year
  12. Inspirational colleague of the year
  13. Career development star of the year
  14. Inspirational board or cabinet member of the year
  15. Inspirational tenant/resident of the year

We’d like to wish everyone shortlisted for the awards the best of luck, and look forward to seeing those of you who are attending. We’re sure that it will be a great success and hope that everyone enjoys this great event.
