East Cambridgeshire District Council has been recognised at this year's National Practitioner Support Service's (NPSS) annual conference for their work on prevention of homelessness in the area.
The department came away with two awards for their work in reducing the level of homelessness in the district, saving £250,000 in the process.
The first award celebrated the work of the whole team and the second was given to housing options officer, Sarah Burton, who was one of three nationally to be picked as a winner of the NPSS’ ‘Going the Extra Mile Award.’
Councillor Mike Rouse, service delivery champion for housing said: “It’s great to see the hard work of the department being acknowledged by their peers.
“East Cambs has a long history of working to ensure that no resident goes without help in a time of need and it is good to see that continuing with such strength.”
