PA Housing has been shortlisted for Inclusivity and Diversity Pioneer of the Year at the UK Housing Awards 2020, in recognition of the fact it goes the "extra mile" to create a culture of respect and acceptance.
Known as the most prestigious awards in the housing sector,the UKHAsare organised by Inside Housing and the Chartered Institute of Housing to celebrate the very best work being done by social landlords across the UK.
With more than 23,000 homes, PA Housing was formed in 2017 as the result of the amalgamation of Paragon and asra, a BME association founded to provide homes for Asian older people.
While we are extremely proud of our BME heritage, we are not content with simply celebrating the past, and we strive for complete inclusivity, delivering trailblazing initiatives that ensure every colleague and resident knows they are valued.
For example, in February last year, we launched our "Everybody is unique" campaign. Starting life as a poster designed for LGBT History Month, the slogan and its accompanying finger print logo caught team members' imaginations.
VERCIDA works with over one hundred clients who are committed to creating an inclusive work
environment. If you are an employer and interested in working with VERCIDA to promote your
