More than 1,000 people attended the UK Housing Awards ceremony as the sector's best projects were revealed.

The ceremony, held at the Park Plaza in London for the first time, attracted record numbers who came together to celebrate the organisations leading the way in the sector.

The awards, organised by CIH and Inside Housing, have continued to grow in recent years. 

Addressing the audience of housing professionals at the start of the ceremony, CIH chief executive Terrie Alafat said: "We’ve seen so many fantastic, pioneering projects again in 2018 - demonstrating truly extraordinary achievements - that it is incredibly difficult to pick one winner.

"You are all living proof that when it comes down to it, there is simply no substitute for good people, doing great work.

"And I want to take this opportunity to thank you for that contribution and for your unwavering commitment for the work that you do.

"It is, after all, a crucial time for us to demonstrate the value in that work."
