UK Housing Awards Finalists!!

UK Housing Awards 2017

Loreburn Housing Association is delighted to announce that we are finalists in the 2017 UK Housing Awards.

Sponsored by Inside Housing and dubbed the ‘most prestigious awards in the housing sector’, UKHA has shortlisted Loreburn among the best in our industry.

Our Galloway Gateway initiative has been recognised as being worthy of competing for ‘Outstanding Innovation of the Year’ for smaller Housing Associations with under 20,000 stock alongside another eight finalists.

Loreburn Chief Executive, Lorraine Usher, said: “We recognise the challenges we must address often extend beyond the bricks and mortar of housing, and believe communities hold the answer to a number of these challenges.  We introduced the Galloway Gateway project as an intergenerational way to harness the strength of communities bringing together a wealth of knowledge whilst at the same time addressing isolation, loneliness and health issues. The Galloway Gateway project has helped our customers build resilience and, more importantly, make new friends. Everyone at Loreburn is delighted that we have been recognised for innovation when there are so many great projects to choose from”.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony at the Lancaster London Hotel on 26 April 2017.
