Foundations Special Webinar, 05 July 2022
National Healthy Housing Awards 2022
Outstanding work is carried out every day to support people across the country to live comfortably in their own homes, and the National Healthy Housing Awards offer you the chance to celebrate the individuals who strive for excellence and the services that truly make your organisation special.
From recognising innovative projects to commending exceptional staff, this year’s Awards will showcase the range of people involved in changing the lives of elderly, vulnerable and disabled people every day.
With a wide range of categories to nominate for this year, we are encouraging entries from a broader range of organisations from across the country who can demonstrate the vital difference they are making.
Entries close at 5pm on Friday 9 September 2022

For Foundations, our mission is to share the magic about Home Improvement Agencies and home adaptations services and the annual awards are a major part of that. Here are five reasons why entering an award could be good for you too.
Awards can be an overlooked tool in your marketing toolbox. Just being shortlisted can improve awareness locally and promote your team to new funders and commissioners. Awards celebrate hard work and success and are great PR opportunities. It’s fantastic to be recognised, so it’s important to make sure that people know what you have achieved. Winning an award can open doors to getting contracts, finding new funders and developing new services.
The application process for entering an award can often force you to look at your team from a different perspective and compare yourself to others in the sector. You’ll need to make sure that you stand out from the competition whether that’s through innovation, diversity, growth, customer service, investment in people or strategic thinking. This will help you think about ways you could be doing things better and identify areas for improvement and is one of the ways your team could benefit that could be more valuable than the prize itself.
An award win, short-listing or nomination can act as a 3rd party endorsement for your team. A win can give a seal of approval to your activities and is a sign of quality for potential funders, so can form part of your sales pitch. It can also help with relationships with suppliers. It’s a great way of differentiating your team and will send out positive signals to senior managers.
Awards validate your hiring stature among new recruits. By pitching yourself as the best you can attract the talent you need to push your team forward. Increased employee morale will also help attract and retain new recruits.
Awards recognise the hard work and achievements of your team so winning one can help boost staff morale and improve motivation. Employees are focused on what’s great about the team they work for and can feel proud to be a part of it. This can be maximised by making sure staff feel they get the recognition they deserve by holding an event to celebrate your victory. Shortlisting includes two places at the awards ceremony at the National Football Museum in Manchester which will yield networking opportunities as well as being a great day out.
We do hope that you will find the time to submit an entry and try to join the hall of fame on our website.
Sponsor an award
All of our awards are free to enter and the ceremony is also free to attend for shortlisted entrants. We want to encourage as many people as possible to share their amazing work. So, we are pleased to offer opportunities to join our main awards sponsor PROCare, in sponsoring individual award categories.
In return you get to present the award to the winner of your category and will be featured in pre and post awards materials (including the ceremony programme). It’s also a great celebratory day out with laughter, appreciation and tears of joy.
Sponsorship packages start from £300, so if you’re interested please email [email protected]
