Aico set to launch all-new Aico | HomeLINK Community Awards in 2022
23 December 2021
AICO HAS announced the launch of its very own awards ceremony, namely the Community Awards. Designed to recognise excellence within social housing and the local community, the Aico | HomeLINK Community Awards boast 11 different categories, all of which are now open to entries.
Categories include College Initiative of the Year, the Rising Star Award, the Women in Fire Safety Award and Best Distributor of the Year. There’s also a Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative Award.
Submissions must be received by close of business on Thursday 31 March 2022, with the finalists announced in early April ahead of the awards ceremony itself, which takes place at Birmingham’s International Convention Centre on Thursday 12 May.
The awards ceremony will be hosted by architect and TV presenter George Clarke, who’s renowned in the industry. With an evening of celebration, recognition, and entertainment, the Aico|HomeLINK Community Awards will celebrate the achievements of inspirational individuals and organisations working within social housing and the local community, all of whom are innovating, demonstrating excellence and putting people first.
Aico’s managing director Neal Hooper informed Fire Safety Matters: “We’re passionate about supporting the sector as well as our communities. Showcasing inspirational people, organisations and initiatives is a great way in which to champion excellence, share knowledge and collaborate in the creation of safer homes. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is such a crucial focus for Aico | HomeLINK, forming a key part of our ethos, which is why we’ve launched these awards. It’s vital that CSR is advocated, encouraging more involvement from people and organisations in supporting their local communities.”
Hooper went on to comment: “We’re very much looking forward to seeing all of the entries celebrating the achievements of inspirational individuals and organisations working within social housing and the local community.”
