Argyll Community Housing Association Wins Two Awards at the Scottish Housing Awards 2023

Argyll Community Housing Association is delighted to announce that their Tenant Scrutiny Group the “Your Voice Group” won the Excellence in Tenant Scrutiny Award and their Warm Homes Team won the Net Zero in Housing award for their Whole House Retrofit Project at the Chartered Institute of Housing’s Scotland Housing Awards 2023.

The Tenant Scrutiny award is for landlords and their tenants who can show excellence in working collaboratively to scrutinise work and embed scrutiny within the culture of the organisation.

The Your Voice Group are a Group of tenants from across the Argyll & Bute area who take an in-depth look at ACHA’s housing services, identifying areas where they think things might be improved or changed.

Jennie Niven, a member of the Group who lives on the island of Tiree said
I am absolutely over the moon that the work of the Your Voice Group has been recognised by the Chartered Institute of Housing. ACHA are extremely supportive of the Group and respond positively to all recommendations that we make whilst scrutinising the housing service.

The Net Zero Housing award recognises partnership work with the contractor, Procast, to deliver whole house retrofit upgrades to properties across various locations in Argyll, including the islands of Islay and Tiree. The project forms part of ACHA's long-term journey to net zero and climate change with the residents being at the forefront.

Cathy Grant, ACHA’s Chair commented
I am incredibly proud of the Your Voice Group and Warm Home Team in winning these awards. It recognises their hard work and commitment to improving services for all our tenants and residents across our wide geographical area. I also appreciate the contribution from all the ACHA Group staff who help support the teams to deliver positive outcomes for our tenants."
