We are delighted to announce that Horton Housing Association has been shortlisted as a finalist for the COVID Resilience Award at this year’s Northern Housing Awards, celebrating the ways our staff, volunteers, clients and services have faced the pandemic.
As an organisation supporting vulnerable people, our absolute priority has been keeping individuals safe from COVID-19 and preventing a major outbreak. Over the past year, our staff members and volunteers have worked tirelessly to go above and beyond to reduce the impact of the pandemic on our services, with these efforts being recognised with a nomination for this award, alongside nine other supported landlords.
Being named as a finalist in this category celebrates how we as an organisation have adapted to the various restrictions and challenges the pandemic has posed, the digital transformation that saw many members of staff and volunteers work agilely from home and the commitment and leadership demonstrated throughout the housing association.
Horton Housing CEO Paul Gartland commented: “I am enormously proud of how all of the staff at Horton Housing have pulled together and worked tirelessly throughout the current pandemic.
“They have continued to support so many people experiencing extraordinary challenges in their lives, over and above coping with the consequences of the COVID-19 virus. To have this work acknowledged, through being shortlisted for the Northern Housing Covid Resilience Award, is extremely gratifying and a great testament to their work.”
We will find out whether we have been successful in winning the award later this spring when the Northern Housing Awards take place virtually on the 13th May 2021.
