Capturing Creativity Pat Chown Award 2018

06/08/2018

Eighteen years ago, Community Housing Cymru set up an Award scheme to recognise housing innovation in memory of a special person - Pat Chown. Pat gave a big part of her life to helping others and spent much of her working life helping to meet people's housing needs in Wales.

As a way of remembering Pat, her contribution to housing and her constant search for better ways of doing things, Community Housing Cymru is inviting entries for the Capturing Creativity Award.

The Award’s aim is to recognise innovation:

· New ways of responding to day-to-day issues.

· Genuinely new ideas about dealing with common problems.

· A much easier way of tackling a long-standing issue.

The Award judges will be looking for entries which demonstrate that the project has been ground-breaking.

Only projects established no more than two years ago are eligible for entry.

Here are some of our winners from previous years:

Newydd
Charter Housing
Cardiff YMCA
Cyrenians/Caer Las Cymru
Bron Afon Community Housing
GrEW

The winner receives an award, a £1,000 donation to a Wales-based charity of their choice, and will be announced at CHC’s One Big Housing Conference in October.

To enter this year's Award please complete and sign the entry form and send it to julia-sorribes@chcymru.org.uk by 9am Friday 7th September 2018.

The entries will be shortlisted down to a final 3 and then we will be back to the sector asking for help in choosing the final winner.
