Longhurst Group Director shortlisted in Women in Housing Awards 2021
13 July 2021
Longhurst Group’s Director of Community Investment, Charmaine Simei, has been shortlisted for a prestigious industry award.
Charmaine will be among the nominees for the Professional of the Year (housing association and local authority) title at the Women in Housing Award in September.
The ceremony will take place at Emirates Old Trafford on 7 September.
As Director of Community Investment, Charmaine is the figurehead and ambassador for all our Community Investment activity, leading a newly-formed team and discovering innovative ways to boost social value across the communities we serve.
Over the last year, she’s driven forward projects including the launch of our new Customer Wellbeing Hub, the Improving Lives Hardship Fund and is also heavily involved with the work of the Housing Associations’ Charitable Trust (HACT). She’s also recently joined the board of Communities that Work.
Thanks to Charmaine’s work, the Group is now front and centre of Community Investment and social value discussions and made nearly 4,000 interventions last year through our Community Investment programme.
The Group would like to congratulate Charmaine – and all other nominees – on her shortlisting and wish her the very best of luck for the awards ceremony in September.
