We are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for the ‘Most Innovative Support/Care Service Award’ at the Housing Digital Innovation Awards 2023.

Alongside Greatwell Homes and Northampton Partnership Homes, we makeup the final three at this prestigious event’s celebration of innovation and positive change across the housing sector.

The Housing Digital Innovation Awards celebrate the best in innovation across UK housing and to represent the city and the North East region on the national stage is an honour.

Having returned to being a registered housing provider, 20 years after last serving as a social landlord and 40 years since the last council house was built, our aim as a local authority is to meet the needs our residents.

Leveraging the power of technology for good, we can realise numerous benefits and supportive solutions for some of our most vulnerable residents, including older people and those living with disabilities. Assistive Technology (AT) is supporting residents across Sunderland to live independently for longer, and this innovative practice has been recognised by the judging panel at the Housing Digital Innovation Awards.

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on the evening of Thursday 9th February at Edgbaston Cricket Ground, Birmingham.
