Kingdom crowned Housing Provider of the Year at Glasgow ceremony

KINGDOM Housing Association is celebrating after being crowned Housing Provider of the Year at the CIH Scotland Housing Awards, held in Glasgow.

There were also awards for Fern Barclay, Kingdom’s health & safety advisor who won the Apprentice of the Year Award and tenant participation officer Eilidh MacDonald, who triumphed in the Young Achiever in Housing category.

Laurie Naumann, one of Glenrothes-based Kingdom’s founding members and current joint vice-chair, was recognised in the Outstanding Contribution to Housing Award for his work in the sector for over four decades.

Kingdom group chief executive Bill Banks said, “Kingdom was shortlisted for 16 submissions at the CIH Scotland Housing Awards this year which is a record for the Association. Credit goes to everyone across the Kingdom Group for their dedication and commitment to delivering exceptional work for our customers, whether those customers are internal or external.

“Winning four awards, including the prestigious Housing Provider of the Year, is a fantastic achievement as the Awards attract extremely high-quality submissions from across the sector. At Kingdom our mission is to provide more than a home and having such a broad range of entries shortlisted shows how much is being done by the team to deliver on that mission.”
