Alpha Living is proud to have won the prestigious national award of 'Best Older People’s Landlord' at the UK Housing Awards 2021.
In judging the award the judging panel were looking for a landlord who had played a vital part in providing housing and support to the elderly population. The award recognises projects that do much more than putting a roof over the heads of their residents, seeking projects that helped people to maintain their independence and live healthy, happy lives
The judging panel were reported to be impressed with the closeness of the Alpha Living team to its customers, how it responded to the challenges of COVID and how positive decisions continued to be made around growth. They said: "Alpha is an organisation that really does put their residents at the heart of everything they do."
"The care for their residents shines through with the welfare support they offer. Their partnerships with other agencies and businesses, in particular around digital skills, together with intergenerational projects with local schoolchildren showcased the innovation, care and support that Alpha's residents love.
"Finally, the senior leadership team pitching in and making and delivering meals for residents during lockdown and all the staff going the extra mile every day, make Alpha a worthy winner.”
Graeme Foster, chief executive of Alpha Living, said: "We are so proud of our team for winning this Award, especially with the challenges we all and particularly older people have faced with the pandemic over the last couple of years.
"Being a small housing association enables us to really get to know our residents on a deeper level; they become part of the family and we are passionate about providing them with an outstanding service shaped around their needs."
Claire Taylor, Chair of Alpha Living, added: "I am beyond proud; huge congratulations to Graeme Foster and the team for this national recognition.
"Seeing first hand how the dedicated Alpha Living team go above and beyond to support our residents in their homes, this award is thoroughly deserved.”
