A HOUSING group which manages homes in Keighley and Bradford has won a prestigious accolade.

Manningham Housing Association has received the British Standards Institution Users Award for Sustainability.

The award, recognising the use of voluntary standards to enable sustainability, was handed over at a ceremony in London.

Ulfat Hussain, the association's deputy chief executive, says: "I'm proud of the team and delighted at the recognition this high-profile award brings them.

"Covid-19 brought inevitable changes to the way we operate, including a need to use technology more effectively to assist service delivery and monitoring of performance.

"The move towards greater digitisation made us more sustainable and will continue to serve us well into the future.

"We always seek to gain positives from every situation we face."
