Candidates sought for lifetime achievement award

A lifetime achievement award for people working in social housing is to be presented for the first time at this year’s UK Housing Awards.

As part of a major overhaul of the leading awards ceremony for the social housing sector a lifetime achievement category is being introduced, and we’d like you to nominate the candidates.

We’re looking for an exceptional individual who is involved in the sector, whether they are a member of staff, board member or resident. To nominate someone you just need to supply their name, a brief description of their role, and 300 words explaining why you feel this person should receive the honour.

The winner will be chosen by a panel of industry experts from the top 10 nominees. These 10 will be invited to attend the ceremony as VIPs, where the winner will be announced.

The UK Housing Awards are organised by Inside Housing and the Chartered Institute of Housing. This year the ceremony has moved from its old position in the calendar to summer time, taking placing on 27 June at an evening ceremony at the Park Lane Hilton, London.
