We are excited to announce that we have opened up nominations for the resident awards event taking place in September. This is an opportunity for Lewisham Homes residents to recognise the people and organisations that have made a real difference in the past year to our communities. If you know residents, staff or contractors who have made an outstanding contribution, nominate them for any of the categories below and they might receive an award which will be presented at our awards ceremony in September.
The nomination categories are:
Has one of our residents outshined themselves during the pandemic? Perhaps they arranged food for the local community, helped out those self-isolating or been there for someone during a tough time? You can nominate an individual, family or community group.
Tenants and residents association (TRA) of the year
Does a TRA you know stand out for their work? Perhaps they’ve managed to improve the way your area looks, offered community projects or even managed to get that ongoing anti-social behaviour issue resolved? Let us know why they deserve to win this award.
Resident of year
We know that all Lewisham Homes’ residents are amazing, but there must be that one person who goes above and beyond to serve their community, checking in on residents, reporting block repairs or organising social activities.
Lewisham Homes’ Academy offers a range of training opportunities. You might know someone who is always keen to learn and attends lots of training, or perhaps someone who has used the training to find work or get a promotion. Tell us who you think has been a training trailblazer.
This can be a Lewisham Homes resident (up to the age of 25) who has supported their community, or they could have made some outstanding personal achievements, perhaps they have overcome barriers and continued to perform well at school. They might even be behind campaigning to ensure young people’s voices are heard.
Do you know of a resident who has helped another get connected digitally? They might have set up a computer for another resident or taught them to use WhatsApp, or maybe they’re the go-to person for other residents when they have technical queries.
Contractor of year
We work with lots of organisations who specialise in repairing or improving Lewisham Homes’ buildings. This category is for contractors who might have been excellent at communicating with residents or maybe they did a fantastic job painting or repairing a home or block.
Lewisham Homes staff
Is there a gardener whose work has made a difference to your neighbourhood, perhaps through their expert planting? Or maybe a housing officer has gone an extra mile for you to help resolve a tricky issue?
How to make a nomination
The deadline for nominations is 12 pm on 21 July.
