PoLHA staff nominated for Excellence in Adult Services award

Sheltered housing staff at Port of Leith Housing Association (PoLHA) have been nominated for an Excellence in Adult Services award.

The awards, as part of the Scottish Social Services Awards 2022, recognise the exceptional work across the social care and social work sector in Scotland. The judging panel was comprised of Scottish Government policy officials and key sector stakeholders.

There were 250 applications for this year’s awards showcasing the best of the social care and social work sector.

The team won a similar award in 2017, demonstrating their continued dedication to providing the best service to residents.

PoLHA chief executive, Heather Kiteley, said: “I am incredibly proud that our staff and their exceptional service are being recognised by the Scottish Social Services Awards, especially after the last few difficult years in this sector. Our team have made a significant impact on the quality of our residents’ lives and I know of so many cases where they have gone above and beyond to create positive and enriching experiences for the people who call our sheltered housing developments home.”

The winners will be announced on 15 September 2022 in Glasgow.
