Langley House Trust Shortlisted for Care and Support Provider of the Year Award

Langley House Trust has been shortlisted for a Care and Support Provider of the Year Award in the 24Housing Awards 2019.

The 24Housing Awards aim to celebrate the very best that the housing sector has to offer.

The prestigious awards were founded in 2013. They recognise “outstanding organisations and individuals who have demonstrated their ability to thrive in the new housing landscape.” Judges look for entries which demonstrate value for money, best practice, successful outcomes and originality.

Langley has continued to demonstrate significant success within the Criminal Justice Sector – helping men and women to live crime and maintaining a reconviction rate of under 3% for those in its housing. Langley works with some of the most challenging people in the Criminal Justice System.

Last year, Langley won Charity of the Year (income over £5m) in the Charity Times Awards. Langley’s entry was recognised in particular for its application that showcased “excellent” charity management.

Speaking about being shortlisted in the 24Housing Awards Tracy Wild CEO said:

I am delighted that we have been shortlisted for the Care and Support Provider of the Year Award by 24Housing. Working in the Criminal Justice Sector as a niche housing association is challenging – not least because of regular funding cuts and government policy changes. But I am pleased that we keep successfully supporting men and women coming from prison to start over, find their feet in the community and live crime-free. It is the dedication, commitment and hard work of our staff that makes all the difference to our clients.

The awards ceremony will be held on 10th October 2019 at the Ricoh Arena. They will be hosted by Mark Dolan, an award-winning broadcaster and comedian. The Care and Support Provider of the Year category has been sponsored by the Longhurst Group, a leading housing group and UK top developer in the Midlands and East of England.
