CIH All-Ireland Housing Awards shortlist announced

We are delighted to announce the shortlisted nominees for the 2022 All-Ireland Housing Awards, which is due to take place at the Europa Hotel in Belfast on 11 February 2022.

The All-Ireland Housing Awards is an opportunity to recognise the individuals and innovations that have made a positive difference to tenants and customers and collate and share incredible best practice from across the sector in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Due to the pandemic, the past year has been a huge challenge, but across this difficult period, the housing sector has pulled together to overcome enormous obstacles, continuing to deliver vital services and support to communities.

All shortlisted entries for the All-Ireland Housing Awards will be included in our 2022 Good Practice Compendium which will be released after the event. The Compendium is not only a core learning document but serves as an inspiration to us all to deliver on our shared vision of supporting housing professionals to create a future where everyone has a place to call home.
