A London based housing organisation - Shepherds Bush Housing Group (SBHG) – has won a prestigious prize at the UK Housing Heroes Awards in London today.

The Group collected the Human Resources Team of the Year award for an impressive range of achievements since the team was established in 2006. Their innovative recruitment strategies and their general approach to marketing Shepherds Bush as an employer resulted in:
