A BURTON-BASED housing provider has been named a winner in the North of England Excellence Awards 2013.
Trent & Dove Housing, which provides affordable housing across East Staffordshire and South Derbyshire, was named the winner in the Not For Profit category of the prestigious awards.
Awards assessors praised the housing association’s leadership team and board for their ‘strong vision and commitment to excellence’ combined with their ‘strong desire to continue learning and to find creative solutions to business issues’.
They said its bosses had transformed the organisation from a local authority housing department into ‘a dynamic housing association recognised as being at the forefront of its sector’.
Established in 2001, Trent & Dove Housing has invested more than £50 million to bring all properties to a modern, energy efficient standard and built 630 new affordable homes.
The awards ceremony was held at Lancashire County Cricket Club.
