Sefton-based housing association One Vision Housing (OVH) has recently won two national awards, in recognition of their work in the community and for their complaints handling process.

The social housing landlord received the Richard Crossley Excellence in Community Action Award at the Tpas (Tenant Participation Advisory Service) awards in Manchester. The award was given for their ‘Celebrate the Good Times’ series of community events which helped to tackle loneliness and social isolation.

These free entry events included: a summer Great Get Together (a More In Common project in partnership with the Jo Cox Foundation), a Suffragette-themed Older Person’s Day celebration, a WWI centenary event and a Christmas Day Lunch for those who would have otherwise spent the holidays alone. The events were supported by the Big Lottery Fund.

Judges call the events “a fantastic achievement” and commended their “clear impact in improving the mental and emotional wellbeing of residents.”

The Tpas award comes shortly after the housing association won the Gold Award for Best Use of Customer Insight and Feedback at the UK Complaint Handling Awards, beating well known giants such as HSBC and lastminute.com.

The judges praised OVH’s Customer Complaint Auditors initiative, where tenants are trained and empowered to improve the complaint handing process. Awarding judge Lee Mostari said he “was blown away by One Vision Housing’s unique and innovative use of customer feedback.”
