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.”
