Creating homes and places where people want to live

Tenant Awards

Congratulations to all our Tenant and Leaseholder Awards finalists for 2021!

In what has been a year like no other, we have seen so many examples of community spirit across our estates and neighbourhoods.

Being able to recognise and say thank you to just some of our community heroes through our Tenant and Leaseholder Awards remains so important.

We held doorstep awards to present our 2021 finalists with their trophies and to celebrate their achievements.

Many congratulations to everybody who entered and gave us the chance to shine a light and say thank you to the unsung heroes of our estates.
