Capturing Creativity - Pat Chown Award 2013

Thirteen 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 in 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 invites entries for the Capturing Creativity Award.

The Award’s aim is to recognise innovation and creativity:

  • New ways of responding to day-to-day issues or dealing with common problems.
  • More effective or easier ways of tackling long-standing issues.
  • Creative ways of responding to the housing and related needs of the communities with which housing associations work.

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