Launched in 1997 the UK Housing Awards were the first to recognise achievement in social housing, and they remain the most respected awards in the sector. The awards recognise the ingenuity, creativity, passion and results of housing organisations across the UK.

CIH chief executive Terrie Alafat said: “The UK Housing Awards recognise the great work being done by housing professionals and organisations across the industry, but they also push us all to do better as a sector.  We hope the achievements of our finalists will inspire others as they aim to provide the best possible services for residents and communities.

“Congratulations to all of the organisations that have been shortlisted, and best of luck for the 20th anniversary ceremony – win or lose your work will help inspire us all to improve.”

Emma Maier, 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, Kirona and North Lanarkshire Council has shown it is performing at the highest level – well done! Being our 20th anniversary means the evening will be even more memorable and we have some great celebrations planned”

The winners will be announced at a ceremony at the Lancaster London Hotel on the 26th April 2016.
