Championing the sector with the Homeless Link Excellence Awards

Tuesday, 8 January 2019 - 10:16am

The Homeless Link Excellence Awards 2019 are now open for entries. 

We’re thrilled to launch the second year of the Homeless Link Excellence Awards. Our award scheme showcases the innovative and effective work of homelessness and supported housing services across the country.

Our members are working under increasingly difficult circumstances to make a real difference for people experiencing homelessness in this country. The work they do is part of our joint aim to end homelessness – keeping people off the streets, in safe and stable accommodation and helping them to rebuild their lives.

Last year, we had some amazing winners that really highlighted the excellent work that’s happening across the sector. From exemplary social enterprise ventures at Providence Row to Hope into Action’s work to get migrant workers who are sleeping rough back into work and accommodation – each and every winner and runner-up had a demonstrable impact on the work to end homelessness.

With the large numbers of people still homeless in this country and provision stretched, it’s sometimes hard to see past the bad news. But, we want to continue to use the Homeless Link Excellence Awards to showcase some of the great work that is happening - showing what’s possible, celebrating innovation and championing projects and services that are really working.

Homeless Link Excellence Awards

The Homeless Link Excellence Awards will continue to highlight the success of services across six key categories with the help of a judging panel of knowledgeable third-sector professionals.

We would like to invite you to enter and use the opportunity to raise your profile as an award-winning charity, demonstrate the impact you are having and reward your hardworking teams. We are offering a £500 prize fund for each winner and will announce the winners at a special awards dinner at our annual conference on 2 July 2019.

The awards are open to any organisation that is a member of Homeless Link and we are taking entries from today until 5pm on Friday 8 March 2019. We look forward to receiving yours!
