Older People’s Housing Schemes win award

We’re pleased to hear that our older people’s housing schemes Churchfields Close, Barnsley Town Centre and Willowcroft, Bolton on Dearne are winners in the Regional Housing for Older People Awards 2019.

Each year the awards celebrate the successful examples of housing for later life and aims to: engage thousands of residents, staff, visitors and volunteers; provide the best possible information on specialist housing; and help shape the future of housing in later life.

Community Building Manager Jill Barker adds: “ We are delighted with this recognition. Nearly 19,000 votes were cast, for 1,200 schemes across the UK, so winning an award is brilliant recognition for the schemes and the great work they do for our residents.”
