Anneka Gill, Head of Transformation at Morgan Sindall Property Services has received a nomination for Professional of the Year, at the Women in Housing Awards, taking place at the CIH Housing 2022 conference on 27th June.
Anneka, an ambassador for women in the housing sector, spearheaded the first domestic abuse contractor’s accreditation in conjunction with the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance (DAHA), training operatives to spot the signs of domestic abuse, a first for the industry. This is now being replicated across housing associations and local authorities across the country.
She also recently developed and launched the Phoenix Programme, to help female residents who have suffered from domestic abuse to gain sustainable employment.
In addition to her day-to-day role, Anneka is a Trainee Board Member at Golden Lane Housing who provide supported housing to adults with learning disabilities. She is also a Non-Executive Director at Addressing Domestic Abuse, which is a community interest company providing bespoke support to social housing providers and their supply chains to respond to domestic abuse, which Anneka also supported in the formation.
The Housing Heroes Awards will take place side by side with the Women in Housing Awards as the opening ceremony at the CIH Housing 2022 conference. The event is held on Monday 27th June at Manchester Central.
