Housing Support Team rated “Excellent”

by The Gateshead Housing Company & filed under News.

Our Housing Support Team was recently awarded a Certificate of Excellence at the Nepacs Ruth Cranfield Awards 2019.

Nepacs (North East Prison After Care Society) is a charity that supports prisoners and their families. It aims to create a more positive future for them.

Each year an award ceremony highlights examples of good practice in the rehabilitation service.

The ceremony recognises any individuals, charities and organisations that provide outstanding rehabilitation support to offenders.

Our team received their award for their work in resettling ex-offenders.

Neighbourhood Relations Manager Mandy Huston said: “We are delighted to receive a Certificate of Excellence.

“The award is a testimony to the team’s hard work, dedication and commitment.

“None of our work would be possible without the support of the probation service and CRC, who we work in partnership with.

 “Our job is not without its challenges, so we are grateful for the recognition.”
