Salix Homes has been recognised for their financial capabilities by receiving a top award. The Finance Team of Salix Homes was announced s the joint winner for the Finance Team of the Year in the small to medium organisation category other Housing Association National Accountancy.
Salix Homes has won a number of different awards since its launch in 2007. The housing association started off all that time ago as an arms length management organisation that had been set up to operate on behalf of Salford City Council. The company is planning to invest £75 million into homes and communities in Salford between 2015 and 2020 in order to make sure that all of the properties managed by the housing association meets the Government’s Decent Homes standard.
The prestigious awards scheme has recognised the Salford based housing provider by giving them this award. This Finance Team of the Year award has been given to Salix only two years after Salix had become the most popular and well thought of housing association. This title has come after more than 8,300 homes from Salford and Salford Council were transferred to Salix Homes after a vote from tenants. This great news for the company is another addition to their impressive reputation and will benefit them going forward.
The Executive Director of Resources at Salix Homes, Simon Morris said that they were surprised to even be announced on the shortlist of the Housing Association National Accountancy awards, so to win this accolade must have come as a real show. However the receipt of this award is a reflection of the hard work that the finance team at Salix Homes puts in to make sure that the housing association is running as well as possible.
The 2017 edition of the Housing Association National Accountancy Awards was the fifth time this ceremony has been held. The Awards are organised by the National Housing Federation and looks to recognise and showcase the individuals and organisations in the finance industry that work hard to make a beneficial impact.
