The Kent Housing Group Excellence Awards have been launched, celebrating the very best projects, professionals and partnerships across housing in the county.

With 12 categories, there are ample opportunities to showcase the work you do, to shine a light on the places you have created, the projects that make a real difference and the people without whom it would not happen. New categories this year celebrate innovation, asset management, work in the private sector, as well as focusing on the best of new development and regeneration.

The Kent Housing Group (KHG) is a forum for housing organisations in Kent and Medway. It has representation from all 12 Kent local authorities, Medway Council, 13 housing associations, Kent County Council and Kent Public Health. KHG also has representation from organisations who work in partnership with social housing landlords, including Homes England, the National Housing Federation, the National Landlords Residents Association and the South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP). For more information about the group visit Kent Housing Group online.

Award nominations close on 26 August and only KHG members can nominate. To receive entry forms and category details contact KHG Partnership Manager Helen Miller by email at helen.miller@ashford.gov.uk

The winners will be announced at a virtual awards ceremony on 12 October. KHG is thankful for sponsorship from Kent Housing and Development Group, DHA Planning, Optivo, Paramount Independent Property Services and Golding Homes.

KHG Chair Sharon Williams said: “These awards are always special. Over the years the judging panel has been touched by the passion and purpose behind the vital contributions colleagues in housing are making in Kent. The ideas, the innovation and the vision that are demonstrated illustrate the caring side of housing and the drive we have to make a difference.

“The categories provide the opportunity for us to celebrate the very best of housing in Kent, be that life-changing projects, new and experienced professionals, or processes and practices that are making a real difference. It can always be said that these are challenging times for the sector, but with everything we have experienced in recent years, now is the time to applaud our excellence.”
