Homes for Good has won the Excellence in the Private Rented Sector award in The CIH Scotland Excellence Awards and our founding director Susan Aktemel was also shortlisted in the Excellence in Leadership and Outstanding Contribution to Housing categories.
The Excellence Awards recognise and celebrate the creativity, passion and innovation of housing organisations and individuals across the housing sector in Scotland.
Our subsidiary Homes for Good Glasgow has also been nominated for Social Investment Deal of the Year in the Social Enterprise UK awards, which take place in December.
Homes for Good founding director Susan Aktemel said: “We are delighted to be nominated for these awards and to have our work recognised in the housing and social enterprise sectors. It has been very much a team effort. Over half of our staff have personal experience of poor conditions in privately rented homes, while our support model was co-produced with tenants with direct experience of insecure and low-quality rental housing.
CIH Scotland director Callum Chomczuk said: “The annual CIH Scotland Excellence Awards are a chance for us to shine a light on the individuals, teams and projects across the housing sector that are making a positive difference to people’s lives. We know that good quality housing and the services provided by housing professionals improve health and wellbeing, reduce poverty and inequality and create vibrant, sustainable communities. We are pleased to be able to celebrate these achievements with more than 400 guests this year at our biggest award ceremony ever.”« Return to News
