The greenest social housing organisations in the UK were congratulated at an awards ceremony in London last week, hosted by one of the world’s greatest living explorers, Sir Ranulph Fiennes and organised by Inside Housing magazine.

Pinnacle PSG was the winner of the Social Housing Contractor of the Year beating stiff competition from more than 100 entrants from all around the country for the second year running.

Pinnacle PSG won the award thanks to its approach to environmental care and sustainability which stems from its desire to protect the environment and create life opportunities for generations to come in all the communities in which it works throughout the UK.

Examples of the organisation’s sustainable, community-focussed projects include: well-being in Woking, sponsoring Surrey Cricket Club youth classes, planting English meadows in inner-city areas and organising 'Leap into Action' days across all of its contracts working with the community to improve areas of their estates.

Emma Maier, editor of Inside Housing, said: ‘The projects and organisations which have been recognised for their outstanding achievements in the most advanced – and affordable – in green building and sustainability.

‘The Sustainable Housing Awards 2014 showcase the best projects and organisations in the UK, and demonstrate that the social housing sector is leading the way on sustainability, despite the challenging policy environment.’

Over 500 people gathered for the celebrations at the prestigious London Lancaster Hotel on 17 October 2014.

Pinnacle PSG has not just one, but two, shortlisted nominees in this year’s prestigious Women in Housing Awards 2014. Rochelle Menville has been shortlisted for the Young Achiever (Housing and Community Development) award for her work in Canning Town, Hackney and Lewisham. Rochelle’s colleague, sheltered housing manager, Julie Impey, based in Canning Town, has been shortlisted for the Best Project/Innovation award for her work revitalising the Ruscoe Road community centre, through an innovative range of activities. Both women have been highly praised by local people for their commitment to community involvement within Canning Town.


A star for the future

Rochelle began her career with Pinnacle PSG as a school leaver working her way up from customer services officer to housing services manager and the management of a complex Private Finance Initiative (PFI) contract to manage and refurbish over 1,250 homes in Canning Town. With each move Rochelle took on greater responsibility, impressing her managers, colleagues and residents along the way. Rochelle plays a leading role in Pinnacle PSG’s Housing Practitioners Group and  plays a key part in making policies user friendly, keeping the needs of residents at the forefront of all discussions.


Bringing the Canning Town community together

At the heart of Canning Town is the Ruscoe Road sheltered housing scheme which has been transformed with Julie at the helm working closely with residents. Julie’s idea to extend the use of the centre by involving both young and older people and parents and carers has ensured that all sections of the local community can come together in bright, new, modern facilities. The centre has had a massive impact on local women who have found a place to socialise, learn and make new friends.


Neil Euesden, managing director of Pinnacle PSG said: “We are incredibly proud of Julie and Rochelle who are committed to always going the extra mile to make a real difference to the quality of life of residents. We wish them the best of luck - they are already winners to us.”


The winners will be announced on Thursday 13th November 2014 at a ceremony taking place in the Hilton Deansgate hotel in Manchester.

This research outlines a clear pathway to an integrated future for public services. A new report from NLGN in association with the CBI and Pinnacle PSG has outlined business models that councils can adopt to help them work towards integration.

The DIY Ethic: Business Models for Community Integration written by NLGN’s Head of Policy and Research Laura Wilkes offers practical assistance for all councils who wish to pursue integration of their services but are unsure how to go about it.

Key findings in the report are that councils should rapidly test new business models, start small and develop models at a neighbourhood level that can be built upon. Councils and their partners will also need to develop a joint approach to managing risk.
