The support teams of Providence Row Housing Association, based in Tower Hamlets, have won a national Housing Heroes Award for their work during the pandemic. The award celebrates the unsung heroes of the housing sector.
The 120 staff provided 24 hour services to former rough sleepers, homeless people and people with mental health issues. They worked throughout Covid and numerous lock downs to offer much needed support and housing across 9 sites in Tower Hamlets as well opening a brand new facility in the City of London.
The Housing Heroes judges praised the commitment of the teams in supporting some of the most vulnerable people in society and for working closely with a wide range of partners to keep individuals safe and well.
The Chartered Institute of Housing’s award for Support and care team of the year was presented to PRHA’s Chief Executive Fiona Humphrey on Tuesday 7 September 2021.
She said “We are so proud of the work of our teams and their bravery and commitment to our residents in such challenging circumstances. Their forward thinking and determination has meant we were able to deliver an exemplary service that built trust and saved lives.”
