Good luck to the Gateway – at the Northern Housing Awards

01 Apr 2019

We are delighted to announce we have been shortlisted for the Northern Housing Awards 2019 in the category of ‘Partnering Scheme of the Year’ for our entry showcasing the Gateway.

The shortlisting follows our success at last year’s awards, where we were honoured as ‘Resident Support/Advice Programme of the Year’.

A total of eight organisations have been shortlisted for the category of ‘Partnering Scheme of the Year’, which recognises organisations that demonstrate innovative partnerships that are breaking new ground to bring benefits for residents of social housing and the wider community.

The Gateway, based on Sankey Street, is owned by Warrington Housing Association and serves as a bridge between the local community, public sector and voluntary/community organisations and provides assistance, advice and guidance to cater for community needs.

David Cummins, CEO of WHA, said: “We’re passionate about making Warrington a great place to live, so it is brilliant to be shortlisted for our partnership work with The Gateway to provide a home for many of Warrington’s community sector organisations.”

The winners will be announced at a gala awards ceremony on Thursday, May 23, at Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester and the prize giving will begin in a dazzling ceremony to celebrate the best in housing across the North.


“We’re really grateful for the excellent service we received from Warrington Housing Association’s Money Adviser and the extra money has made a big difference, helping us hire a gardener and be able to go to LifeTime more often where we enjoy singing in the choir”

Mr & Mrs Holland – WHiA Customers

“I’m so grateful to Warrington Housing Association for reaching out to me to make sure I’m claiming my full benefit entitlements”

Ms Heseltine – WHA Resident

“We couldn’t have navigated the benefits system without the fantastic help we received from Warrington Housing Association’s Money Adviser”

Andrew & Eileen – WHA Residents

“I felt like a big weight had been lifted off my shoulders and that I had somebody on my side”

Barbara, WHA resident

“Warrington Housing Association’s Whia service is great, as it helps people stay in their own home, and this is really complimented by the fact that you are then introduced to their other services like the LifeTime centre – which shows they really care for the community they work in.”
