Two Abbeyfield houses win National Housing for Older People Awards
Abbeyfield’s house in Esplanade, Greenock, won gold in the awards, and its Stonehaven house won silver in the retirement housing under-25 units category.
Abbeyfield Scotland, the charity which provides support for older people, is celebrating two of its houses winning a prestigious National Housing for Older People Award.
Abbeyfield’s house in Esplanade, Greenock, won gold in the awards, and its Stonehaven house won silver in the retirement housing under-25 units category. This is the first time that both houses have won and this builds on previous awards success across the organisation. The house in Greenock has also won a national award which will be revealed at the celebrations on 21 May.
The prestigious awards are designed to raise the profile of retirement housing throughout the country and encourage people to vote for their favourite residential development. This year, nearly 19,000 votes were cast for the 1,220 nominated housing development or schemes across the UK.
Carolynn Malone, Service Manager for Abbeyfield Scotland said: “We are thrilled to have two of our houses win these important awards. Our staff and volunteers are very dedicated and work hard across all our houses. It’s great that the team in Greenock and Stonehaven have been recognised in this way as these awards are highly prized. We look forward to the awards ceremony in May.”
The awards will be celebrated on Tuesday 21 May 2019 at The Sheridan Suite in Manchester www.eacawards.org.uk
