All shortlisted entries for the All-Ireland Housing Awards have been included in our 2022 Good Practice Compendium. A core learning document full of inspiration, ideas, and innovation to help everyone across the sector create a future where everyone has a place to call home.
Commenting on the award winners, Justin Cartwright, national director of CIH Northern Ireland, said:
“The All-Ireland Housing Awards and accompanying Good Practice Compendium is one of the most important activities in the housing sector each year. It pulls together examples and case studies of how housing professionals make a difference - a difference to the tenants and communities that we serve across the region and wider public policy objectives that make a difference in all our lives.
The importance of sharing good practices has taken on an even greater significance as we continue to improve as a sector, evolving in the face of new challenges to help everyone across the sector create a future where everyone has a place to call home.
All the entries had an incredibly high standard of innovation and delivery that we should all be proud of. I would like to share my heartfelt congratulations to the winners and everyone who submitted an entry to the awards.”
