Homeless Service Nominated for Award

Gloucester City Homes (GCH) is delighted to have been selected as a finalist for the UK Housing Awards Homeless Project of the Year (over 4000 homes) Award.

This award seeks to celebrate projects, initiatives and organisations working to prevent or relieve homelessness in their communities.

GCH now has 62 Homeless Units across the city,  managing three hostels that provide individual rooms with shared facilities as an alternative to Bed & Breakfast, and 28 self-contained flats that are used on a more longer-term basis. We also have a further 34 properties dispersed throughout Gloucester communities which are used to place families and single people who are able to manage a property of their own or to give them a chance at managing in their own accommodation, whilst continuing to find a permanent home.

Lisa Nicholls, Assistant Director of Housing Services said, “I’m delighted that our Homeless Accommodation has been selected as a finalist in the UK Housing Awards as Homeless Project of the Year.  This recognition is testament to our creative approach in developing quality homeless accommodation, our partnership with the Local Authority and also the commitment of our  Homeless Services Team.”
