Foundation Housing’s YourFoundation Support Services were double winners at the ‘What we are proud’ of awards held in Kegworth by the National Housing Federation earlier this month.
Foundation walked away with the ‘Best Impact on Residents’ award as well as ‘Most outstanding individual,’ which went to Angela Prince whose story is familiar to regular readers Foundation’s quarterly magazine. The work carried out Foundation’s female hostel to support women in to their own accommodation in 2010 was recognised to be of a particularly high standard, with many also finding employment as well as a new home.
Angela Prince, who now sits on Foundation’s Local Offers steering group and the FHA Scrutiny Panel, was able to attend the night and receive her award in person.
Managing Director Nikki Chawda said ‘We are delighted that the quality of our support services has been recognised in this way. It goes to show just how important housing related support is, as the difference it makes for our customers is clear for all to see’.
