We are proud to announce that we now work in partnership with Keep Britain Tidy Providing many different training courses along with the Neighbourhood Award!
The Keep Britain Tidy Neighbourhood Award recognises and promotes the very best social housing providers. It is a nationally recognised quality mark that tells communities, businesses and stakeholders that you are one of the very best in the sector. Social housing providers who display the award will be recognised as being among the cleanest, safest and greenest.
Many organisations ask us why they should apply for the Neighbourhood award. Achieving a Keep Britain Tidy Neighbourhood Award demonstrates that your organisation is committed to offering the very highest levels of service. It is a guarantee to your customers and partners that you are dedicated to maintaining standards through innovation and good practice. It is a public mark of quality – to residents, stakeholders and partners. This stamp of quality not only builds your organisation’s credibility, it increases public awareness and enhances your image.
The Neighbourhood Award was first introduced in 2007 after Keep Britain Tidy piloted a scheme to assist housing providers in achieving a nationally recognised standard. With the help of other organisations, including the Tenant Participation Advisory Service (TPAS), Audit Commission, Housing Corporation and social housing providers, the initiative was developed and improved to ensure it offered a robust and thorough assessment, judged against high standards.
Today, with significant changes in both government and social housing, the award has been adapted and refined to reflect the sector. Utilising the experience and expertise of social housing providers and the National Housing Federation, they have continued to develop the award to ensure it remains current and effective. By setting an industry benchmark, their aim is to drive improvements and to be able to shine a light on those organisations that are delivering the highest levels of quality. Their awards highlight innovation, share good practice and drive up standards in the sector.
The Neighbourhood Award presents social housing providers with a clear framework against which they can be assessed. Their aim is to both encourage improvements in the sector and also recognises and rewards those organisations that offer the very highest levels of quality
