24housing Awards  
At an exciting awards ceremony on 12th October we were delighted to win Care & Support Provider of the Year at the 24housing Awards. 
These awards were founded in 2013 with the aim of celebrating the very best that the housing sector has to offer. They recognise outstanding organisations and individuals who have demonstrated their ability to thrive in the new housing landscape. 
The distinguished panel of judges were looking for entries that demonstrate value for money, best practice, successful outcomes and originality. In judging this category they said about us:  
“Helping refugees integrate into a new community can be a hard task but ACH have been mastering the art over the past nine years. The organisation believe it is not enough to put a roof over someone’s head, but to support them to achieve more in the community. Its resettling service focuses on teaching refugees English and offering training and skills as well as CV writing.” 
Responsible Business Awards 
Then, on 16th October we were delighted again to be crowned Social Enterprise of the Year at the Ethical Corporation Responsible Business Awards. 
These Awards celebrate and reward the leading organisations from across the globe, recognising those that are truly having an impact on business, society and the environment – setting new standards and direction for business. 
We were described by the judges as:  
“A stand out winner - Very impactful! Addressing the refugee issue on all fronts, from housing to education targeted not just to provide rudimentary English, but to help prepare clients for jobs. Tackling the issue at its source as well in Africa, this shows true innovation. Amazingly brave for a housing association.” 
MTM Awards 
We’re also pleased to announce that we have been nominated for 2 categories in the MTM Awards 2017.
