We are delighted to support the Young Achiever in Housing category at the CIH Excellence Awards 2016 in memory of Bob Allan, GHA’s first Chief Executive.
One of our priorities at GHA, part of Wheatley Group, is to help increase the supply of much-needed affordable housing. That’s why over the next few years we’re building hundreds of quality homes in our communities.
But we’re not just about bricks and mortar. We also work hard, with our partners, to support tenants and their families to get the most out of their lives. That includes creating jobs and training opportunities and supporting, in a range of ways, our most vulnerable customers.
