Spitalfields Housing Association shortlisted for community award

PUBLISHED: 12:23 03 October 2012

Spitalfields Housing Association has been shortlisted for a national community award recognising its work tackling health and poverty issues.

A panel of tenants have put the Association’s Women’s Forum, through which social housing tenants carry out community work, through to the next round.

The regional winner of the Community Impact Awards, organised by the National Housing Federation, will be announced on October 11 at a special ceremony.

The national winner is set to be revealed in early 2013.

Chief Executive Omar Mapara said: “We’re delighted to have been selected for the next stage of the Community Impact Awards. It’s even more special to be chosen by a panel of residents living in social housing – they know first-hand the difference housing associations can make.”
