Stockport Homes has won the Best Contractor in Engagement award at the TPAS Northern awards. The winners were announced at a ceremony at the Palace Hotel, Manchester on 29 April 2016.
The award recognises an initiative or investment that delivers added value and is responsive to local needs.
Stockport Homes won the award for its unique partnership with B4Box which helps to tackle a local need to provide targeted support to their most disadvantaged tenants who face multiple barriers to work. It was also praised for addressing a national challenge of attracting, training and qualifying the next generation of recruits to the construction industry.
David Wright, Chair of Stockport Homes' Board said,
We are thrilled to have been recognised for our collaboration with B4Box at the TPAS Northern awards. It is a superb recognition and example of some of the strong partnerships we have and evidences how we work closely with other agencies to provide the best support possible to our customers.
As a result, Stockport Homes are now shortlisted in the TPAS National Awards which are due to take place at Chesford Grange, Warwickshire on 14 July 2016.
