Stockport Homes double-shortlisted in Public Service Excellence Awards

Posted 11 July 2017

Stockport Homes has been shortlisted for the “Best Service Team” and “Best Health & Wellbeing Initiative” in the Association for Public Service Excellence (APSE) Annual Service Awards 2017. The winners will be announced at a ceremony at The King’s Centre, Oxford on Thursday 7 September.

The APSE awards recognise the best in local government frontline services. This year, the awards have attracted over 310 submissions with over 100 organisations taking part from across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. 

Robin Burman, Chair of Stockport Homes' Board said,

We are proud to have been shortlisted in these two categories for the APSE awards against strong competition. We pride ourselves on the provision of excellent services and our innovative approach and it is fantastic to receive recognition for both.

Hi Benni, I would advise that you discuss your housing situation with our Homechoice team who can be contacted on 0161 217 6016 or email


I am on ESA due to mental and physical, long term health issues. I am unable to ever work. They award points for people who work, volunteer, or are in training. I cannot do any of those, so people who ARE able bodied get more points that I do.
I do get medical points but I still have nowhere near enough total points to ever get rehoused; I have been bidding for two years and at least thirty people are in front of me every week. I am probably never going to get rehoused. It is not as if Im being overly fussy about properties; I cannot go for stairs for example.

I even had a wonderful doctors letter saying that my current home is no longer suitable and also making me more ill, and I only got a measly 10 points. It is unfair that people who CANNOT work or volunteer get less points than those who CAN. I am a clean, quiet and decent middle aged woman, non smoker, no pets or children. I had landlords sing my praises in the past yet this counts for nothing. I also have the most excellent references, yet I am stuck with terrible neighbours and two flights of stairs that I can no longer manage; with no chance of ever getting out. I cannot afford private either as the shortfall in rent is out of my reach.
