The awards, which were announced on Friday 22 February at Titanic Belfast, recognise the outstanding contribution to local communities of people working in housing and homelessness across Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
Clanmil's new Cullingtree Meadows supported housing scheme in west Belfast for people living with dementia was named Best Housing Development. The scheme is run by Clanmil in partnership with the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust. The restoration of the 19th century Rosetta Cottages in South Belfast by Clanmil's Hearth Heritage Division was Highly Commended in this category.
The Association's work in schools to promote shared neighbourhoods took the top prize in the Promoting Equality category. Clanmil is currently working to deliver four new shared neighbourhoods in Dundrum, Belfast, Banbridge and Crossgar.
Clare McCarty, Group Chief Executive at Clanmil, is delighted to receive these accolades. She said;
"It is fantastic to see the work of our team recognised in this way. We are very proud of what we have achieved this year.
"These awards are also a well-deserved acknowledgment of the many partners who work with us to deliver homes and services that really meet our tenants' needs. We are grateful to you all. Together we are delivering great homes that are welcoming to all."
