We make our own North

The heart and soul of the Northern Powerhouse is its people. Living, loving, mithering, we do it all with true grit and self-determination, but we don’t tend to make too much of a song and dance about our achievements.
That’s where the Northern Housing Awards come in. We’ll do it for you.
If you work in or with the housing sector, then we want to hear about your achievements; working to provide affordable homes and helping communities to thrive.
We want to hear about the services you’ve devised that are changing lives.
We want to hear about your innovations; solving problems and overcoming obstacles to build a better North.
In short, we want to hear how you are making a difference for the people of our regions.
We’re very demanding, we know, but these things matter -- and we want to shout about them from the rooftops.
The Northern Housing Awards are here to celebrate and promote all the great things the Northern Powerhouse’s affordable housing providers and their supply chain partners are doing. That means you, so don’t be backwards in coming forwards.
There’s no prize for false modesty.


The North has a long and rich history of innovation which doesn’t stop with science and industry but extends to the homes and communities we create.
Amid claims of a ‘broken UK housing market’, we want to promote and celebrate innovative affordable housing providers, projects and services in the North that are helping to create great communities where people love to live.

“The success of the Northern Powerhouse will be determined by the people who live there.
Building more homes is central to a vision of a country that works for everyone.”
