Recognition for housing bodies

Have your say

SOUTH Yorkshire housing management firm Berneslai Homes, and Barnsley Federation of Tenants and Residents, have been shortlisted jointly for a regional award.

The nomination recognises the two organisations for setting up ‘Challenge Berneslai Panels’, through which tenants and residents meet twice a year to scrutinise the service Berneslai Homes provides and suggest improvements.

The organisations are shortlisted for an honour at the Northern England Tenant Participation and Advisory Service and winners will be announced in May.

Joan Whitaker, chair of Barnsley Federation, praised its dedicated volunteers.

She said: “I am delighted that we have been shortlisted as it recognises the hard work which is put in by our volunteers.”
