CIH Regional Awards 2018
Showcasing the best in housing where you are
CIH’s regional awards are back and better than ever.
The 2018 awards give you the chance to showcase your outstanding work as the very best in your area - and it doesn’t end there; the winners in each of the regions automatically go forward to make up the shortlist for the same categories at the prestigious 2018 Housing Heroes Awards.
This year we’ve streamlined the awards to make them simple and easy to enter.
For the 2018 awards there are two categories, both recognising professionals who have made an exceptional contribution.
• Apprentice of the year
• Exceptional contribution by a CIH member
Entry is free; all you need to do is read the category information and fill out the form available on our dedicated awards site.
The deadline for entries is Monday 26 February.
• Showcase your great work or the work of a colleague
• Compete with the best in the country - the regional winners of the three catergories will automatically go through to the final of the prestigious 2018 Housing Heroes Awards
• Showcase your organisation as a great place to work
What the winners say
Chen Thompson, from Wolverhampton Homes, won Apprentice the Year at the 2017 Housing Heroes Awards after winning in the Midlands category.
She said: "Winning meant a lot. I love my job and I work very hard, its rewarding in itself but to get an award doing what I love doing was fantastic. And it’s a daily reminder to keep setting goals and be the best version of yourself, never give up!
"When I won there were a lot of things running through my head - I was very overwhelmed and honoured winning the award it was definitely a moment I won’t forget.
"Wolverhampton Homes was really proud so they put it on front page of their magazine, my college, Wolverhampton College, got our local newspaper in to put it in the paper and I’ve since given a talk to future apprentices about my experience.
"It has helped my confidence a lot and has showed me how important it is that we recognise and celebrate our journeys."
