Thames Valley Housing was this week announced as a 2017 Winner in the Housing Association of the Year category of the prestigious What House? Awards.
CEO John Baldwin and Commercial Director Kush Rawal received their Award from comedian Jack Whitehall and former England rugby captain Lawrence Dallaglio at a luncheon at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane.
The annual Housing Association of the Year Award, which was presented in front of 1,700 senior housebuilding figures, is open to all housing associations, large and small, with judges looking at all aspects of performance from design and build, value for money, management and marketing.
What House? said: “Thames Valley Housing wins the Silver this year for its continuing willingness to challenge the status quo and innovate to achieve its goals. Thames Valley Housing has an exceptional shared ownership offering……. [and the] association is also rebranding its shared ownership properties to keep the product fresh and interesting. Elsewhere, its smart strategic partnership deals mean its private market sales arm, Opal Land, and private renting product, Fizzy Living, contribute valuable cross-subsidies to help fund new affordable homes and remain ahead of the competition in terms of brand profile. Finally, Thames Valley Housing takes its commitment to customers seriously, working hard to deliver a modern online service and refocusing its community investment funds to ensure all projects help keep management costs down and support residents get jobs.”
CEO John Baldwin said: “We are delighted to be recognised as one of the top Housing Associations in the UK. This Award is for all at Thames Valley Housing who have contributed to our success.”
