It’s always good to be recognised for the hard work that you do, and last week we were informed that Candida Dutiro - the Chair of our Resident Representative Team (RRT) has been shortlisted for a Women in Housing Award, in the 'Board/committee member of the year' category.

Candida is passionate about making people’s lives better, something she truly believes in. Her dedication and commitment to RRT and the work Red Kite does is a credit to her. It is obvious that the housing sector needs volunteers like Candida to ensure the voices of people who live in social housing are elevated and not stifled, guaranteeing that tenants' interests are always at the forefront of the services we deliver.

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony, taking place on Monday 24 June 2024 at Manchester Central, alongside the Housing 2024 event.

We wish Candida and all the other nominees the best of luck!
