This year Sellick Partnership are delighted to be sponsoring the Repairs & Maintenance category at the 2019 24housing Awards. Founded in 2013 the 24housing Awards provides an evening of celebration, reflection and recognition of the UK housing sector and its professionals. There are a total of 14 categories to enter including Repairs & Maintenance Provider of the Year, Affordable Housing Scheme of the Year and Chief Executive of the Year.
Senior Manager, Claire Harrison is excited to be involved this year;
“After attending the 2018 24housing Awards we knew we wanted to be involved in 2019 and jumped at the chance of sponsoring the Repairs & Maintenance Category this year. Events like this are really important to us as a business as they allow us to shine a light on the great work that is done every day within our specialist sectors. We work with many organisations within the Housing & Property Services sector, and witness the great work they do every day, so we felt like we wanted to do something to help promote and give back to the people that work so hard and make the sector such a success.
“We have been working closely with 24housing over the last 12 months and seen how their publication and events allow housing association’s to share best practice and help them demonstrate how they add value by working collaboratively. This is another great example of how we can promote the work that these organisations are doing to make a difference within the sector and celebrate the success of those who go above and beyond.”
Mark Lawrence, editor of 24housing Magazine is also excited for another massive year of the event and stresses the importance of awards like this to give credit where credit is due;
“There has never been a more exciting or challenging time to work in housing. Reductions in government grants and changes to the benefits system have forced housing providers to think creatively about the type of organisations they want to be.
“With an ageing housing stock, the need to keep homes up to a high standard has become key. The Repairs and Maintenance category, sponsored by Sellick Partnership in 2019, showcases those who have set the bar high, been innovative and wowed tenants. Last year’s winners, family-owned MCP Property Services Ltd, highlighted just how important this category is, going above and beyond to provide tenants with more than just a standard repairs service.”
Judged by some of the industry’s most distinguished names, the 24housing Awards panel will be looking for entries that demonstrate value for money, best practice, successful outcomes and originality. Taking place at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry on Thursday 10 October 2019, the 24housing Awards will be a night to remember, and we would love to see some of you there!
Entries are now open and will close on Friday 26 July 2019.
