The CIH Scotland Awards are back – bigger and better than ever!

The annual CIH Scotland Housing Awards are now open for entries. The Scotland Housing Awards are an opportunity to recognise and highlight the creativity, passion and innovation of individuals, organisations and projects that have helped tenants, customers, and communities throughout the year.

There are 19 categories in this year’s awards, including homelessness, professionalism, equality, net zero and young achiever in housing. The wide range of categories ensures there is an award that pays tribute to the many, and varied, remarkable teams and dedicated professionals that continue to demonstrate a real commitment to the housing sector, delivering vital services and support to communities throughout the nation – from big housing organisations to smaller businesses, individual housing professionals and tenants.

The awards are now open for entry and close on Friday 26 August 2023. You can find out more and upload your submission.

This year’s entries will be reviewed by a judging panel of tenants, residents, and housing experts, providing a well-rounded view on every application.

Callum Chomczuk, director of CIH Scotland and judge on the Scotland Housing Awards panel, commented

“The Scottish Housing sector, year after year, demonstrates incredible resilience in continuing to deliver outstanding services and support to tenants.

“This year’s Scotland Housing Awards will, again, provide an opportunity to support and recognise the creativity, determination, innovation and achievements of Scotland’s housing professionals.

“I encourage every housing organisation, that can demonstrate a real impact on the lives of their tenants and communities, to consider applying for an award. Each year I look forward to judging these awards and being inspired by the great work of the Scottish housing sector.”

The winners will be announced at a live award ceremony at the Radisson Blu, Glasgow on the evening of Friday, 27 October 2023.

All shortlisted entries from the awards will be showcased in a Good Practice Compendium, a core learning document for the sector providing inspiration to deliver on the shared vision of providing a sustainable and affordable housing option for everyone. The publications will be distributed throughout the sector following the ceremony.
