Northern Silver Screen Awards 2015


The Northern Silver Screen Awards are when we bring our members together to celebrate the good work that has been done across the north over the past 12 months.

Each year the evening takes place following the first day of our annual Northern Housing Summit, which this year is taking place in Manchester for the first time.

The awards, which are now in their eighth year, sees shortlisted projects filmed and subsequently broadcast in front of a pack auditorium. Winners of each category are then announced on the night after being judged by an independent panel.

The categories

Entries for this year are now closed.

  • Innovation and Technology

    Have you implemented any ground-breaking technological solutions that are dramatically improving the experience for your tenants? You could be using drones to conduct your property surveys, or have started supplying parts on demand for your properties through 3D printing.

  • Building Healthy Communities

    If you’ve been working towards creating healthier communities, we’d love to hear about what you’ve been doing. Whether it’s been achieved through tenant participation, drop-in sessions, or by building stronger links with your local PCT, we want to know more!

  • Inspiring Young Tenant

    We’d love to hear about any young tenants who have been an inspiration to others in the community.

The Regeneration Award was won by Coast & Country Housing’s ‘Empty Homes Project’, which aims to bring empty homes and commercial properties that have been left unoccupied for six months or more back into use.

The Building Community Capacity Award was won by Carlisle City Council’s ‘Community Meals Direct’, a not-for-profit social enterprise engaged in growing, sourcing, preparing and delivering local freshly cooked food to elderly and housebound people.

The Tenant Enterprise Award was won by Symphony Housing Group’s ‘Bright Idea’ project, which is run in collaboration with Management Consultants, Blue Orchid, and provides specialist events, hosted groups and business support sessions aimed at helping tenants across Greater Manchester to set up their own businesses.
