Our Better Lives Awards 2024

Last year, to mark our 50th anniversary, we recognised some of our colleagues and customers who had achieved great things through our first ever Better Lives Awards.

We had so many outstanding nominations, plus brilliant feedback on the awards event, we decided to hold them again this year!

It’s a great opportunity to celebrate our colleagues and customers who do so many fantastic things in pursuit of our achieving our vision of more home, great services, better lives.

The winners will be decided by a group of NCHA customers.

Here are this year’s award categories:
