Derventio Housing Trust is proud to have been named as one of three finalists in the Not-for-Profit category of the Derby Telegraph Business Awards 2019.
The awards celebrate the best of the city and county's businessness and nominees range from innovative small businesses to top-performing large firms.
A registered social landlord, Derventio Housing Trust provides accommodation and support to people experiencing homelessness. Last year, 1438 people were helped to improve their life skills and confidence, with 978 living in Derventio's supported accommodation, improving their prospects to avoid future homelessness.
Derventio's support promotes good health and wellbeing, resilience and independent living, learning and employment. Services include Growing Lives, using activities and teamwork to develop confidence and reduce social isolation. Building Better Opportunities helps people make positive steps into employment, and the Personal Transitions Service focuses on building strengths.
The Not-for-Profit Organisation Award is sponsored by Sellick Partnership, and Derventio has been shortlisted alongside Treetops Hospice Care and Headway. The winners will be announced at a gala awards dinner to be held at Derby College's Roundhouse on Wednesday 5th June 2019.
