ARCH Community Champion Awards   


At this year's conference the ARCH Tenant Group will be announcing the winners of the ARCH Community Champion Award which recognises the dedication, willingness, inspiration and devotion that our tenants freely give to others and it is hoped that this can motivate others and give them examples of things they can do in their own community.


In 2022 there will be two ARCH Community Champion Awards, one of which will be specifically for those aged under 25.


The awards recognise individuals or groups who have dedicated their time to making a difference in their community and to the lives of people living in social housing. They don't necessarily have to be part of a formal tenant panel, tenant & residents association, group, committee or forum to be nominated. Nominees can be a tenant, a member of the tenant's household, a community group or anyone contributing to the Hosing Revenue Account.


Download an entry form here and return to deadline for entries is Friday 12 August 2022.


The announcement of this years' winners, and the presentations, will take place during the conference.
