ARCH Community Champion
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 email@example.com.The
deadline for entries is Friday 12 August 2022.
The announcement of this years' winners, and the presentations,
will take place during the conference.
