Award winning PlaceShapers

PlaceShaper Poplar HARCA was named outstanding landlord of the year in the 2015 UK Housing Awards.

South Yorkshire Housing Association took the prize for the best campaign of the year with its Age Better in Sheffield campaign.

The Accord Group won the accolade for the best large housing development with Marlfield Farm in Redditch.

Wythenshawe Community Housing Group was highly commended for  its Real Neighbours Wythenshawe scheme.

PlaceShapers chair Tony Stacey said: “PlaceShapers won awards for the quality of our homes and services and for campaigns which make a real and lasting difference to communities. This is at the heart of the PlaceShapers ethos and is testimony to the impact of community focused housing associations. Many of our members are setting the pace on rethinking our relationships with our customers, and co-designing services to reflect this. This came through in the exceptionally high number of members short-listed and in the winning entries themselves.”
