NPH was recognised by the judging panel for ‘delivering wide ranging, pragmatic and effective services for many customers and supporting the whole community during hard times.’

Nicky McKenzie, NPH’s assistant director for housing said: “We are absolutely thrilled to receive this kind of recognition for the hard work and dedication the team has shown over the past year.

“I’m always proud of what this amazing team does to support residents, but the way everyone pulled together and put their personal fears and challenges aside during the height of the pandemic, was nothing short of remarkable.

“I’d like to thank our residents for their ongoing support and cooperation, as well as all colleagues across the organisation.

“At NPH, we recognise that providing housing and support services is truly a team effort. “Every colleague at NPH deserves to celebrate this win and to be recognised for their hard work and commitment.”

Team NPH were also praised for their dedication throughout the pandemic and for offering alternative solutions for resident involvement and wellbeing.
