Fri 07, Jul 2017

Bridge Housing’s groundbreaking Hand Up rent arrears management program was recognised with an industry award at last night’s Australasian Housing Institute NSW awards.

The award was accepted by Manager, Service Innovation, Dr Reece Plunkett (left), and Housing Support Specialist Ally Moodie (right).

CEO John Nicolades said: “It is an honour for Bridge Housing’s service innovation in dealing with the issue of significant rent arrears from a business perspective and to help tenants get their lives back on track to win this award from the peak industry body for community housing professionals.”

Bridge Housing was also highly commended in the Leading Housing Development category for our new housing for older single women in Ashfield, an award accepted by Development Director Chris Dib.

“Congratulations to the Bridge Housing staff who designed, developed and implemented Hand up, to our Development Team for its great work on Ashfield, and to the winners in all other award categories.”

The annual Awards formally recognise and reward excellence in professional practice and promote the difference that social housing professionals make to people’s lives. The Leading Innovation award was hotly contested by 10 other entrants. Hand Up will go into running for the national award to be announced in November.
