Genesis wins Development of the Year at UK Housing Awards 2013

The outstanding contributions made by the UK’s housing organisations, to help improve the lives of people in their communities were honoured at a glittering awards ceremony in London, hosted by stand-up comedian and TV regular Sue Perkins and organised by the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) and Inside Housing magazine.

Genesis Housing Association was the winner of the Development of the Year (large schemes) for the Stratford Halo development, beating stiff competition from around the country. 

CIH chief executive Grainia Long said,“Congratulations to all the winners of this year’s UK Housing Awards.  Housing is facing an increasingly challenging environment as the government’s welfare reforms get underway, and their passion, dedication and innovation is nothing less than inspiring for all of us working in the industry.  Maintaining, improving and promoting standards are a hugely important part of CIH’s role, and we hope housing providers will take this opportunity to learn from the excellent work of all the award winners and shortlisted finalists.”

Genesis CEO Neil Hadden said, “We are thrilled to have won this award; the Stratford Halo development is a flagship for us all at Genesis. It is brilliant that the hard work and dedication the team here at Genesis has put in has been recognised by the UK Housing Awards.”
