KEIGHLEY social housing group Incommunities has been shortlisted for a trio of top awards.

It is in the running for accolades in two categories of the 24housing Awards – communication team of the year and best training scheme.

Hundreds of housing organisations entered this year’s awards scheme, which celebrates the sector’s best providers.

And the group has also been shortlisted in the Women in Housing Awards, for its work encouraging more young people from all backgrounds to explore careers in construction.

Geraldine Howley, Incommunities’ group chief executive, said: “We are delighted to make the shortlist for these three awards.

“This is a fabulous achievement and a testament to the hard work and ambitions of our staff.

“As a group we are committed to encouraging more talented people to build their careers in the sector and, equally, invest in our workforce and its development.

“This shortlisting follows hot on the heels of our ‘top landlord’ ranking by a leading UK housing magazine and a training accolade for our work investing in apprenticeships.”

Winners in both the 24housing programme and Women in Housing Awards will be announced on October 10.
