On November 14th we were extremely proud and humbled to win the Positive Social Impact award at the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards 2017, at a packed ceremony in London. This award celebrates the organisations bringing their values to life through a range of social impact initiatives. We were one of 10 finalists and faced stiff competition, which makes it all the more exciting. 
 
 
The judges said: 
 
"Ashley Community Housing, in a short space of time, have built an integrated model to help empower talented refugees to realise their potential, contribute to the economy and integrate with society. Fuad Mahamed and his team are also using their insight and example through advocacy to influence politicians, businesses and communities to support a change in perception and conditions, so that all can benefit. The judges were struck by the passion, innovation and professionalism brought to one of the most important issues of the day." 
 
Jeff Greenidge, who represented ACH at the awards, said: “It’s great to have won a Lloyds Bank National Business Award tonight for the local work that we do in Bristol. 
 
"It’s a great accolade because we work hard to achieve this award - the refugees and community organisers have really contributed to this award tonight too.”
