MANNINGHAM Housing Association has won an award for its "incredible work" over lockdown at the Chartered Institute of Housing’s Northern Awards 2021.

Staff at MHA, which manages 1,400 homes for over 6,000 people in Bradford and Keighley, were praised by the judges “for their incredible work with tenants and residents during the uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic”.

As well as the trophy for Outstanding Approaches to Communications, MHA’s Community Investment and Partnerships team was shortlisted in the Team of the Year category.

The award was collected by MHA’s assistant chief executive Ulfat Hussain, who said: “I am always proud of the team at MHA but, since the onset of the pandemic, their dedication to caring for the needs of our tenants and surrounding communities has reached new heights.

“MHA may be one of the smaller housing associations in the country, but we are also one of the best that punches well above our weight."
